How To Link An Image In Google Slides

If you’re looking to make your Google Slides presentation more interactive and engaging, adding hyperlinks to your images is a great way to do this. By linking an image, you can redirect your audience to a different slide in your presentation, to a webpage, or even to a new document entirely. In this blog post, we are going to take you through the steps of how to link an image in Google Slides.

Step 1: Open Your Google Slides Presentation

First things first, open up the Google Slides presentation that contains the image you want to link. Navigate to the slide that contains the image. If you haven’t yet inserted the image, click on Insert > Image > Upload from computer to add your image.

Step 2: Select Your Image

Click on the image to select it. The image will be highlighted when it’s selected, and you’ll see small circles at the corners and the middle of each side of the image, these are the resize handles.

Step 3: Add the Hyperlink

With your image selected, right-click on it and select Link from the drop-down menu. This will open up a dialog box where you can input the URL you’d like your image to link to.

Alternatively, you can also use the shortcut Ctrl + K (on a PC) or Command + K (on a mac) to open the link dialog box.

Once the dialog box is open, paste or type the URL you want to link to in the box. Click Apply to add the link.

Step 4: Test Your Link

After you’ve applied the link, it’s always a good idea to test it to make sure it works. To do this, go to present mode by clicking on View > Present and then click on the image in your slide. The link should open in a new tab.


Adding a link to an image in Google Slides is a simple task that can add a lot of value to your presentation. It not only makes your slides more interactive but also allows you to share more information with your audience without cluttering your slides. We hope you found this tutorial helpful!
