Background Fun

 
I'm working on a new media program, and wanted a background image for the slides. I decided on green, and just started playing. Which one do you like? I've made my selection, based on various requirements, but I like them all for various reasons.

Since I tend to like a bit of a grunge and aged look, the second one is my favorite.
Looks like you have a busy weekend coming up

I like the first plain green one best--simple background makes the presentation more professional and also easier to read because the background isn't distracting. That's my opinion.

Lin said...

I agree with both Ann and Karen. I think it depends on what you are putting on top of those backgrounds. Words would work best on the first, but I like the second for photos and such.

Ivy said...

Voting for the second too

Hi Ann- the second one is also my favorite, but it won't work well for this program.

Karen- I think a little texture is ok. That one doesn't have enough

Lin- agreed. With both photos and words, I'm going with #3

Ivy- see comment to Ann.

I liked the 1st and the 4th one for the slide as they are simple and nice.
