You can use Beamer command \setbeamercolor{}. In this case use \setbeamercolor{footlinecolor}{fg=<color1>, bg=<color2>}. You might also want to change the \setbeamercolor{footnote}{fg=<color>, bg=<color>} and \setbeamercolor{footnote mark}{fg=<color>, bg=<color>}. As for the width have a look here: How do I adjust the width of Beamer's footnote "area"?

  • I am unable to modify the changes: This is my code:

  • \setbeamertemplate{footline} { \leavevmode% \hrulefill \hbox{% \setbeamercolor{footnote}{fg=black,bg=yellow} \pgfsetfillopacity{0.25}\begin{beamercolorbox}[wd=1.00\paperwidth,ht=4.00ex,dp=1ex,center]{title in head/foot}% \hspace*{1em}\insertframenumber{}/\inserttotalframenumber\hspace*{30ex} \usebeamerfont{title in head/foot}\insertshorttitle\hspace*{9em} \usebeamerfont{date in head/foot}\insertshortdate{}\hspace*{3em} \end{beamercolorbox}}% \vskip4pt% }
