In this quick tip, we'll look at three ways to use subtle textures and patterns to add depth and visual interest to your PowerPoint or e-learning slides. Adding background textures or patterns is one of the best ways to transform flat, two-dimensional feeling slides into slides with depth, richness, and visual interest. And the best part is you don't have to redesign your slides to make this work.
- Backgrounds: Since backgrounds are the largest slide element, they're an obvious choice for adding subtle textures and patterns to create visual interest, a sense of depth, or personality to your slide designs.
- Image overlays: By applying subtle textures and pixel patterns as overlays on photos, you can create a visually engaging and distinctive look that adds depth and personality to your presentation or course design while maintaining clarity and focus on your content.
- Frames and borders: Finally, we'll look at some ways you can use subtle textures and patterns as image borders to add a sense of depth and visual interest to your slides.
