Step 1. Apply a Clean Theme
The first thing you need to do to make over this presentation is apply a clean theme or template. A clean theme is a simple slide design that includes a plain white background—think of it as an empty canvas. Applying a clean theme allows the pictures to stand out well. To apply the theme, follow these steps:
- Open the nobullets_00.pptx presentation from the Makeover 07\Steps folder on the CD.
- Click the Design tab on the Ribbon, and mouse over the themes that you see in Figure 8.3. Click on the theme thumbnail when the ToolTip says Office Theme. Even if you can't see the ToolTips, this theme is easy to locate because it's the only one that has a plain white background.

- All the slides in the presentation now will show a white background. Save your presentation.
