What are PowerPoint Backgrounds?
PowerPoint Backgrounds are graphic backgrounds designed and produced by our creative team of artists at 123PPT.com for use as Title Master and Slide Master backgrounds in PowerPoint presentations.
What is the difference between PowerPoint Backgrounds and PowerPoint Templates?
PowerPoint Backgrounds are individual graphic images that can be applied to new or existing PowerPoint presentations as the background for the Title Master, Slide Master, or as backgrounds for individual.

Because PowerPoint Backgrounds are graphic images, and not PowerPoint Templates, they do not contain any text formatting and layout design as PowerPoint Templates, but can instead be used as a basis for building your own personal PowerPoint Template Designs.

PowerPoint Templates are "pre-made" presentation shells. When you apply a PowerPoint Template to your presentation, the Title Master and Slide Master (text slide or secondary slide) are already available for you to insert text and the typeface, font color, and size already set (recommendations...that you can change).

PowerPoint Backgrounds offer the ultimate in flexibility and customisation. These are high resolution JPG images that you use in your presentations as a "background" or as a "picture". These images can be modified with standard PowerPoint drawing tools (see ideas below) and can also be used in many other applications.
Why do the PowerPoint Background graphics on your site have 123PPT.com written across them?
When you select a PowerPoint Backgrounds thumbnail or scroll through the PowerPoint Backgrounds details page. The minature PowerPoint Background graphics have 123PPT.com written across them.

123PPT.com is written across the thumbnail images to protect them from piracy and users who would otherwise avoid purchasing the full screen resolution PowerPoint Background.

All full resolution purchased PowerPoint Backgrounds, do not have 123PPT.com written across them, and are ready for use within PowerPoint.
What is the difference between your Free PowerPoint Backgrounds and the PowerPoint Backgrounds which I can purchase from your site?
In the Free PowerPoint Backgrounds section we present a number of free PowerPoint Backgrounds for you to download and use. Because the backgrounds in this section are provided to you free of charge and without need to license or pay for use, each background in the Free PowerPoint Backgrounds section is watermarked. All of our commerically available PowerPoint Backgrounds in all other PowerPoint Background sections are not watermarked and may be purchased and downloaded for use in your PowerPoint presentations.
Will your PowerPoint Backgrounds work with PowerPoint for Macintosh and PC?
All PowerPoint Backgrounds are graphic images saved in high resolution JPG format and as such all PowerPoint Backgrounds are cross-platform and work for both Macintosh and PC Windows PowerPoint application owners.
In what resolution do the PowerPoint Backgrounds work?
All PowerPoint Backgrounds are optimised for resolutions of 1024 x 768 pixels and higher. Every PowerPoint Background scales proportionally to any resolution due to the flexibility of PowerPoint to resize files either down to lower screen resolutions such as 800 x 600 or higher screen resolutions such as Full High-Defintion (HD) 1920 x 1080.
In what release versions of PowerPoint can I use PowerPoint Backgrounds?

Can I do more things with PowerPoint Backgrounds in PowerPoint?
Absolutely. The standard drawing tools in PowerPoint offer a variety of options for customizing your backgrounds. In just minutes using standard drawing tools in PowerPoint, you can make as many versions as you need to emphasise your points.

Draw a shape, fill it with a matching or complimentary color, rotate the shape, add shadows or transparency. You can do all this and more using the standard Draw menu in PowerPoint and your only limitation is your imagination.
Am I free to use any PowerPoint Background as often as I like?
