Then we have something new here as Composed Looks that state the color of the site and most importantly it tells from which Master Page or Theme it is inheriting that feature from.

It also has an Image URL if they are inheriting an image and they too have a Font Scheme URL if they are inheriting it from a style for the look and feel of the site.

Composed Looks

This is the end of Part 2, see you again with other parts.

Keep Leaning,

Cheers.
