Using templates

Great presentations start with a great plan. That’s why we have a library of customizable templates in Prezi Next that come with a predesigned structure of topics and subtopics to get you started. Choose by category, color, or by scrolling through the library to find the perfect template to make your content effective and memorable.

Choosing a template

To create a new presentation, just click New presentation from your dashboard.

You’ll then see a variety of templates to choose from. Sort by category in the left sidebar to find templates designed for a specific topic. You can also click on a colored dot in the left sidebar to filter templates according to their theme colors.

Click on a template to open a preview, then use the left and right arrows to preview its content and style. Click Use this template to create a new presentation, or close the window to select a different one.

Editing your template

After you choose a template and start a new presentation, you can customize it at any time. Click here to learn all about structuring your presentation or here for an article about adding topics and subtopics.

Editing the background image

Click Background & theme in the context toolbar to get the pop-out sidebar. From here you can change the background color or upload a new background image.

To change the background color, simply click on the square next to “Background color” and choose from the palette. You can also add a branded or customized color by using its hexadecimal code.

From here you can give your presentation a solid background color or choose a customized linear or radial gradient. Configure the gradient by selecting the start and end colors, along with the opacity.

For more information about setting the theme of your presentation, check out this article. You can also learn all about background images here.

Changing your template

If you’d like to completely change your template, you have to create a new presentation and copy (CTRL/CMD+C) and paste (CTRL/CMD+V) your content individually between the two presentations.
