This is another one of those lessons I wish I had when I first started working with presentations and images. This lesson teaches students how to make quick gradient backgrounds using the free online photo editing program Pixlr. Plain colored backgrounds just look so boring compared to these gradient ones. It is such a simple thing but it makes such a difference. The lesson comes as a pdf and with a link to the fully editable Google Slides presentation. This is a step by step guide for anyone to use. No prior knowledge is needed.
