Applying Color and Effects to an Object

When you want to change the color of only one element in your presentation on only one slide, you don't need to use the Color Scheme dialog box. Instead, you can select the object and open the Color dialog box for the color you want to change—the fill, border, line, text, and so on. The fill is the inside pattern or color of an object or background. For example, if you have drawn a square, the fill is the color inside the border. PowerPoint fill effects include gradients, textures, patterns, and pictures. The Color dialog box looks the same from one element to another. When you work with color, you should keep in mind whether you'll be printing handouts in black and white. PowerPoint makes it easy to preview color presentations in grayscale and black and white.

Change an Object's Color

Click the object(s) whose color you want to change.

Click the Fill Color, Line Color, or Text Color button on the Drawing toolbar to change an object's color.

Click a color from the color scheme, or click More Fill Colors, and then select a color.
