Dark background or white in PowerPoint slides
Dark or white background?
It depends on some different factors.
If you are using LED, Like LCD and LEDs ،white background is not really recommended because the high bright light may annoy your audience’s eyes, in this case, I suggest you use this kind of black backgrounds.
But if you’re using a data projector, it’s better not to use a black background, otherwise, your slide texts would not be readable enough.
So it’s better to use a white background.
But if you ask me I should say that it’s better to be prepared for Both situations and change the color theme immediately based on the hall’s situation.
Generally, I recommend white background cause it’s easier to remove the background of the image and also printing your slides.
