The title text of a PowerPoint presentation is usually quite large. If your presentation can benefit from changing the boring black title text to something a little more color, use an image instead.
Open your PowerPoint presentation and go to the slide that contains the text we’re going to insert picture as a fill color. Make sure the text is large enough to recognize the image you are inserting.
In this example, we will use the following:
Font type: Arial black
Cut: 88 pt
Once you’re ready, select text by clicking and dragging your cursor over the text.
The “Format format” tab appears at the top of the menu bar. Here, select “Text Fill” in the “WordArt Styles” group.
In the drop-down menu that appears, select “Image”.
The “Insert Images” dialog box appears, with three options for selecting an image. Select the option that best suits you. Note: Although searching from the icon library is technically an option, it will simply leave your text disfigured.
From a file
Selecting this option will display the File Explorer (Finder for Mac). Here, navigate to the location of the image you want to insert, select it, and click the “Insert” button.
Selecting this option will bring up an online image search powered by Bing. Enter the type of image you want to search for in the search bar or select a subject under the search bar to open a library of related images.
Whichever method you choose, locate and select the desired image and click “Insert”.
No matter where you have selected the image – your own file or from an online search – once you have selected “Insert”, the image will appear inside the text.
