Free PowerPoint Backgrounds

Following on from our previous Awesome Backgrounds post, we’ve got a plethora (a large cornucopia) of free PowerPoint Backgrounds, right here. Using PowerPoint backgrounds is a fantastic way to spice up otherwise dreary presentations. And our backgrounds are so easy to use – all you have to do is save them to your computer and then insert them as a picture onto the slides that need them. If you are a more advanced PowerPoint user, you might like to insert them onto the slide master so that they appear on every slide. You can either insert them directly onto the slide or format the background as an image. The choice is yours.

Here are your free PowerPoint backgrounds:


Bokeh Background 1 Bokeh Background 2 Bokeh Background 3
Bokeh Background 4 Bokeh Background 5 Bokeh Background 6
Bokeh Background 7 Bokeh Background 8 Bokeh Background 9
Bokeh Background 10 Bokeh Background 11 Bokeh Background 12
Bokeh Background 13 Bokeh Background 14 Bokeh Background 15

Each background measures an impressive 1500px wide by 1200px high. Distortions in the image due to stretching it to fit the whole PowerPoint slide won’t be an issue, as these images are just the right size.

Stay tuned for complete PowerPoint templates, too. These templates will include flashy backgrounds, like you see above, and also other elements like tables and charts that use the same colour scheme.

If you use PowerPoint, then you’ll love these awesome backgrounds for your presentations. Beautifully designed by our team of talented artists, these PowerPoint backgrounds will stun your audience into silence!

To download these free backgrounds, simply click on a thumbnail to open up the full size image – a whopping 1500px wide by 1200px high – and then click File > Save as in your internet browser. Save the image somewhere handy on your hard drive.

When the time comes to use one in a PowerPoint presentation, go to the Insert tab and click Picture (in the Images group). Locate your background and double click on it to insert it. You may have to resize it to fit your slide, and you can do that by dragging on the resize handles at the corners of the image (while it’s selected) and along each side.

If you’re a PowerPoint guru, you’ll probably want to add the background to the Slide Master instead. Performing this one action makes the background appear on all slides. To add an background to the slide master, go to the View tab and click on Slide Master (in the Master Views group). Select the top slide on the left (the Slide Master for the current PowerPoint theme), and then insert the background on the slide, as explained above. When finished, close the Master View, by clicking on the big red ‘X’ over to the right of the ribbon. Now every slide that you add to your presentation will have the background image on it.
