Step 1: Open Your Google Slides Presentation

Firstly, you need to go to Google Slides and open the presentation that you want to edit.

After uploading an image onto the slide, click on the picture to select it. You’ll notice a blue box around the picture indicating that the image is selected.

Step 4: Open the Format Options

With the image selected, click on the Format Options button at the top right of the toolbar or go to Format > Format Options.
