I am trying to create some PowerPoint templates for work and need to know what size images to use for the templates so they will look good on the screen. I tried making one with images that are 1024 x 768 pixels and when I view it on a large screen it looks awful.

I have searched and can't find any real clear guidelines for this.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Make sure that you also adjust the resolution of your computer to best work with the projector or whatever device you are using to display your powerpoint. –  Johannes Aug 15 '13 at 19:47
    
I also advise you use as many vector based graphics as possible for the template. This isn't quite straight-forward (you must use .WMF or .EMF), but not so bad once you get the hang of it –  JohnB Aug 15 '13 at 19:56

1280px wide by 720px tall is generally a good size, especially if it will be displayed on an HDTV.
