Background (Image Pool)

Background (Image Pool)

Vibe Communication slides link to a pool of background images using your Theme, that will be applied to all slides by default. But as all slides are editable, you can also individually customise the Background Image field with an image that suits your content.

If the Background field in the your slides settings shows 'Theme on', your slide will show - at Random - one of the images you have saved into the Background Image Pool each time the slide appears onscreen.

When the Background field in the your slides settings shows 'Theme off', you can select/upload an image from the image manager. Images in the Background Image Pool will not show.
