Note - For this tutorial in PowerPoint 2003 and earlier - Watermarks in PowerPoint
Enhance Your Slides with a Watermark
Watermarks can be as simple as a company logo placed in a corner of the slide to brand it, or can be a large image that is used as the background for the slide. In the case of a large image, the watermark is often faded so that it does not distract the audience from the content of your slides.
