Adding a background image

Adding an image to your background of your presentation is a great way to set a motif and tie together your presentation. Used strategically with the structure of your topics, you can create an effective, memorable masterpiece that’s sure to win over your audience.

You can add an image to the background using the “Background & Theme” sidebar. From here you can also change your theme color scheme, change your background, and change the background color.

Adding a background image

1. From the editor, click the Background & Theme button in the context toolbar to get the pop-out sidebar.

2. Click Upload background image.

3. Select the image you’d like to upload and click Open. The image will appear in the background.

4. You can also click Fit background to overview for the best fit or change the background color.

Note: For best results, Prezi recommends uploading a background image that's originally sized at 1800 pixels in width. This way, you know exactly how the image will look in your presentation.
