Google Slides is a versatile tool that can enhance your presentations. One feature that can add a touch of professionalism to your slides is image transparency. While Google Slides doesn’t come with a built-in function to adjust image transparency, it can easily be accomplished with a few simple steps. Let’s explore how you can do this.
Step 1: Open Google Slides
First, you need to open up Google Slides. You can do this by going to the Google Slides homepage and selecting Start a new presentation.
Step 2: Insert your image
Once your new presentation is open, go to the menu bar and click on Insert > Image to add the image you want to make transparent.
Step 3: Duplicate your image
After your image is inserted, you’ll need to make a copy of it. Right-click on the image and select Copy, then right-click on the slide and select Paste.
Step 4: Open Google Drawings
Now, head over to Google Drawings by clicking on New > More > Google Drawings in your Google Drive.
Step 5: Paste your image into Google Drawings
Once you’re in Google Drawings, paste the image you copied earlier. You can do this by selecting Edit > Paste from the menu bar.
Step 6: Adjust the image transparency
Now, it’s time to make your image transparent. Here’s how:
1. Click on your image to select it. 2. Go to the menu bar and click on <strong>Format > Format options</strong>. 3. In the Format options panel that opens on the right, click on <strong>Adjustments</strong>. 4. Slide the <strong>Transparency</strong> slider to your preferred level.
After adjusting the transparency, you’ll need to download your image. Go to File > Download > PNG (or JPEG, depending on your preference).
Step 7: Insert the transparent image into your Google Slides
Finally, go back to your Google Slides presentation and remove the original image. Then, insert the newly downloaded transparent image by going to Insert > Image > Upload from computer.
Et voila! You’ve now successfully made an image on Google Slides transparent. While it would be convenient if Google Slides had a built-in transparency feature, this workaround is fairly simple and straightforward. Happy presenting!
