Google Slides is not just an excellent tool for creating presentations. With its various features and flexibility, you can also use it for creating beautiful image collages. In today’s blog, we’re going to guide you through the process of making a collage in Google Slides.
Step 1: Open a New Google Slides Document
To start with, you will need to open a new Google Slides document. If you are new to Google Slides, simply head to https://www.google.com/slides/about/ and click on the ‘Go to Google Slides’ button. Once you are in the Google Slides homepage, click on the ‘+ Blank’ button to create a new presentation.
Step 2: Remove Text boxes
By default, a new Google Slides document comes with two text boxes on the slide. Since we’ll be making a collage, we won’t need these. Click on each text box and hit the delete button on your keyboard to remove them.
Step 3: Insert Images
Now, it’s time to insert the images you want in your collage. Navigate to Insert -> Image in the toolbar at the top. From here, you can add images from your computer, Google Drive, or even search the web for images.
Step 4: Resize and Arrange Images
Once you have all your images on the slide, you can start arranging them to form a collage. Simply click on an image to select it, and then drag the corners to resize it. You can also click and drag the image to move it around the slide. Repeat this process until you’re satisfied with your collage.
Step 5: Add Borders and Effects (Optional)
If you want to add borders or special effects to your images, Google Slides has you covered. Simply click on an image to select it, and navigate to Format -> Format options in the toolbar. Here you can add a border, shadow, and even reflection to your image.
Step 6: Save and Download
Once you’re done arranging your collage, you can save it by clicking on File -> Download -> JPEG or PNG to download your collage as an image file.
And there you have it! A simple step-by-step guide to creating a collage in Google Slides. With its easy-to-use interface and numerous features, Google Slides is an excellent tool for making collages, whether for school projects, work presentations, or just for fun.
