Create a background with a picture, logo, or other objects

Do not set a full-screen, solid background color this way

  1. Switch to the slide master view (or, if you wish to change only one slide, the slide view).
  2. Turn on the Drawing toolbar.
  3. Insert objects.
  4. Select the objects.
  5. Choose Draw → Order ? Send to Back so that the objects are behind the text placeholders.

You should then configure the background color scheme color to be a color that reflects an "average" of your background.  For example, if you are using a photo that has a lot of dark green, set the background color scheme color to a dark green.
