Use photos to create text-friendly PowerPoint slides

The online library at ChurchArt.com contains a wide variety of PowerPoint slides featuring transparent areas. That way text stands out, yet some of the image still shows through. These slides are ideal for worship services, meetings and presentations because they grab people’s attention and convey information in visually pleasing ways.
