Adding a Background to Your Slides

If you want to add a background to your quiz (or any other slide) you will first need to find the image you wish to use as a background. You can either find one online or create one with a program such as Adobe Photoshop


The first step is to uncheck the "Use Master Slide Background" on the properties panel

Preoperties Panel


Next, you will need to select the folder just under the Background section.

This will allow you to browse for your image


Properties Panel



Once you find your image, Captivate will bring it in. You will be able to adjust the color parameters of the image. Once everything is good, press OK


Note: This only applies to the currently selected slide. You will have to change the background for each slide in your presentation that is going to differentiate from the primary slide.


Found Image

Once you have navigated to a specific image, you will see it automatically every time you click on the background folder. This makes it easier for subsequent slides.
