Creating a Custom Theme for SharePoint 2010 using PowerPoint


One of the neat little features in SharePoint 2010 is the ability to leverage your organization’s PowerPoint slide to create the look and feel for your SharePoint sites

With MOSS 2007, you had to adhere to a Corporate Style Guide and design your CSS themes manually. 

With 2010 you can leverage any existing Marketing Collateral that you might have and import those styles into SharePoint.

Here is a default SharePoint 2010 site

If you are using PowerPoint 2010, open up any PowerPoint slide and goto the BackStage and click Save As and choose “Office Theme” as your File Type Option.  Give an appropriate name for your theme, since your users will be using this name to identify the theme within the theme gallery

Now that you have saved your theme, Goto Site Settings and goto the Themes gallery and upload your newly created Office Theme

Your custom theme should now be available for your sites.
