How To Make Image Background Transparent In Google Slides

Google Slides is a fantastic tool for creating presentations. One of the great features it offers is the ability to modify images directly in your slides, including making image backgrounds transparent. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of making an image background transparent in Google Slides.

Step 1: Open Your Google Slides Presentation

Firstly, you need to open up the Google Slides presentation you are working on. If you do not have a presentation yet, you can create a new one by going to the Google Slides homepage, clicking on the + (plus) sign, and selecting New Presentation.

Step 2: Insert Your Image

Next, navigate to the slide where you want to add an image. Click on the Insert tab at the top and then select Image from the dropdown menu. You can then choose to upload an image from your computer, or search the web for an image.

Step 3: Adjust Image Transparency

Once your image is in place, click on it to select it. Then, click on the Format Options button, which will appear in the toolbar at the top. From there, navigate to the Adjustments section. Here you’ll find a slider for transparency.

Click Format Options > Adjustments > Transparency Slider

Slide it to the right to increase the transparency of the image. As you move the slider, you’ll notice that your image begins to blend with the slide’s background, making it transparent. Adjust this until the image background reaches the level of transparency you desire.

Step 4: Save Your Slide

Once you’re satisfied with the transparency of your image, you can simply click anywhere outside the image or the menu to save your changes.


That’s it! Your Google Slides presentation now has an image with a transparent background! This feature allows you to blend images with your slide backgrounds for a more professional look. Have fun exploring more ways to enhance your presentations with Google Slides!
