How To Make A Image Background Transparent In Google Slides

Presentations are a great way to communicate ideas, and Google Slides is a powerful tool for creating these presentations. One common task is inserting images into your slides. But what if you want to make the background of these images transparent? This blog post will guide you through the process of making an image background transparent in Google Slides.

Step 1: Select Your Image

The first step in making your image background transparent is to select the image. Click on the image to select it, you will know it’s selected when you see a blue box surrounding the image.

Step 2: Open the Format Options

With the image selected, click on the “Format Options” button in the toolbar at the top of the page. This will open a sidebar on the right side of the screen with various options for formatting your image.

Step 3: Adjust the Transparency

In the Format Options sidebar, click on the “Adjustments” tab. Here you will see a slider for “Transparency”. You can adjust this slider to change the transparency of your image. The more you move the slider to the right, the more transparent your image will become. If you want to make the background completely transparent, move the slider all the way to the right.

Step 4: Deselect the Image

Once you’re happy with the transparency of your image, click anywhere outside the image to deselect it. Your changes will be saved automatically.

Additional Tips

Note that Google Slides does not currently support making only the background of an image transparent while leaving the foreground opaque. The transparency setting applies to the entire image. If you need to make only the background transparent, you will need to use a graphics program like Photoshop or GIMP to remove the background before adding the image to your slide.

That’s it! You now know how to make an image background transparent in Google Slides. This technique can help you create more visually appealing presentations by allowing you to overlay images on different backgrounds.

Remember, practice makes perfect. So, don’t be afraid to experiment with different images and transparency settings to see what works best for your presentation.
