How To Add A Live Photo To Google Slides

Are you looking to add a bit of dynamism to your Google Slides presentations? Live photos can be a unique way to bring your slides to life. While Google Slides may not natively support live photos, there is a workaround that allows you to insert live photos into your presentations. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process.

What is a Live Photo?

A Live Photo is a feature introduced by Apple that turns a still photo into a short video. When you press a Live Photo, it plays for around 3 seconds, showing motion and sound. This can make presentations more engaging and exciting.

Converting Live Photos to Video

To add a live photo to Google Slides, the first step is to convert the live photo into a video format. This is necessary because Google Slides does not directly support Live Photos, but it does support videos.

Step 1: Convert Live Photo to Video

Open the live photo on your iPhone, swipe upward to reveal the Effects panel, then select Loop or Bounce to convert the Live Photo into a video.

Step 2: Share the Video

After converting the Live Photo to a video, share it with yourself. You can email it to yourself or save it to a cloud storage service like Google Drive.

Inserting Video into Google Slides

Now that your Live Photo is in video format, you can insert it into Google Slides. Here is how:

Step 1: Upload Video to Google Drive

Upload the video that you just converted from Live Photo to Google Drive. Ensure that it is saved in a location that you can easily find.

Step 2: Open Google Slides

Open your Google Slides presentation or create a new one.

Step 3: Insert Video

Select the slide where you want to insert the video. Click on Insert in the menu bar, then select Video from the dropdown menu.

Step 4: Select Your Video

To insert the video, choose the Google Drive tab and find the video you saved earlier. Click on the video and then click Select to insert it into the slide.

With these steps, you can bring dynamic live photos to your Google Slides presentations. This can add an element of fun and engagement to your presentations and make them stand out. Happy presenting!
