Using Color Schemes

A color scheme (see Figure 36.10) consists of eight colors, one for each major type of element in a presentation. Each of PowerPoint's ready-made color schemes consists of foreground and background colors that work well together.

The problem is that sometimes you don't want the colors to work together all that well. From time to time, a little bit of clash can be a good thing. For example, the color schemes that ship with PowerPoint can be very soothing when applied to text and backgrounds. But when you have a chart on the screen, you want the bars to stand apart from each other: The viewer should be able to tell at a glance where one data bar ends and another begins.
