Put Your Company Logo in the Corner of All PowerPoint Slides

By Peter Weverka

A company logo in the corner of all PowerPoint slides in a presentation tells viewers in no uncertain terms which company the presenter works for. And a company logo looks good, too.

To put a logo (or any other image) on all slides, start by obtaining the image in a graphics file. Then place the graphic in a corner of the master slide. Any item that appears on the master slide appears on all slides in the presentation.

Follow these steps to put a logo or other image in the corner of all slides in a presentation:

1Choose View→Master→Slide Master.

You switch to Slide Master view.

2Choose Insert→Photo→Picture from File to open the Choose a Picture dialog box.

You will see your picture files in the dialog box.

3Locate the graphic file you want to put on all slides, select it, and click the Insert button.

The graphic lands in the middle of the master slide.

4Drag a selection handle on the corner of the graphic toward the center of the graphic to decrease the graphic’s size.

Dragging selection handles on graphics changes their size.

5Drag the graphic into a corner of the master slide.

Position the logo where you would like for it to appear.

6Choose View→Normal to leave Slide Master view.

How do you like the logo? If you need to adjust its position or size, choose View→Master→Slide Master to return to Slide Master view. From there, change the logo’s size and position.
