Background for PowerPoint - Transparency

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am new to paint.net. I am trying to take a picture and make it more transparent. The object is to use it as the background for a Powerpoint presentation. Thus I want the background to just give a hint of the picture and not disturb the content of the sldes.

I have tried using background properties and decreasing the opacity but that does not seem to do anything.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Best Regards

You should try to search on some Power Point Forum...

I only have a french version so I don't know the correct terms in english.

Open the View Menu (File / Edit / View)

Select the slide master.

Add a rectangle and right-click on it to click the paint bucket.

Set the transparency to 50% and click on the color list box (don't choose background) click on textures then image. Choose the picture.

It works for me. You could adapt the transparency.

Then disactivate the slide master.

Maybe you could decrease the transparency within Paint.NET, then save your image as a PNG image, so that it keeps that transparency information. Now import the image into the PP presentation and you should be OK!
