As a Google Slides user, you are likely aware that you can change the colors of text, backgrounds, and other elements on your slides. But did you know that if you select a pre-built theme or import a theme, you also have master control over your colors? This may not seem like a big deal, but it can make a significant difference in keeping your presentations consistent in look and feel.
First, let’s take a look at the colors built into a particular theme. When you open a Google Slide with a pre-built theme, such as the orange and teal theme in the example, you can see that the text color is orange, while the accents are teal and lime-yellow. There are also some gray text boxes.
If you want to change the color of a particular text box, you can easily do so by selecting it and choosing a new color. However, if you want to change the colors of several elements at once, you can do this by going into slide edit master.
In edit master, you can change the theme colors as a whole. Click on the color palette and select “theme colors.” Here, you’ll see a drop-down menu with all the colors built into your current theme. You can choose to change a particular color or select a new color combination altogether.
When you make changes to the theme colors on your master slide, these changes will impact all of your slides. You can also change the color of hyperlinks by customizing the hyperlink color in the “link” section.
If you’re not sure which colors to choose, there are resources available to help you build out good-looking color combinations. With a little experimentation, you can have fun and enjoy picking out the accents that best fit your presentation.
In conclusion, editing the theme colors in Google Slides can help you create a cohesive and polished presentation. By using the master control over the colors in your theme, you can ensure that your presentation is consistent in look and feel throughout.
