Which template exists to avoid black and blue colors? The most templates are using either blue or black. Is there something with red or green available?

Please, look at Beamer Template Gallery, deic.uab.es/~iblanes/beamer_gallery – Papiro May 7 '13 at 20:48
Why, yes, of course, have you had a look at the documentation or at the beamer matrix? – Gonzalo Medina May 7 '13 at 20:49

the point font color is good – user29701 May 7 '13 at 21:03

If you use a pre-defines style (Madrid, Hannover, Antibe, Warsaw,...) , you can use the command


Put it in your preamble, and it will adapt the colour of the theme...

what means rgb? – user29701 May 7 '13 at 20:56
maybe red green blue – mnemonic May 7 '13 at 20:57
It's the international code for describing the colours... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RGB_color_model But if you don't want to use these codes, the package xcolor has named a lot of colours... Just add \usepackage[dvipsnames]{xcolor}in your preamble, and use these colors : en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Colors – EisenHeim May 7 '13 at 21:00
@PierreVivegnis that's an assumption that somebody (user29701) prefers the color names when not being familiar with rgb. yes, it would be easy to use SkyBlue for instance, but mostly that will not be a requirement. – mnemonic May 7 '13 at 21:16
Of course it's not a requirement ! I only suggest it because he didn't seem very familiar with rgb (neither I am)... It was just a proposition, sorry for the misunderstanding. – EisenHeim May 7 '13 at 21:31
