When you’re creating a presentation, you may often need to use images to enhance your slides. But what do you do when you need an image to be transparent? Google Slides does not provide an in-built feature to make an image transparent. But don’t worry, there’s still a way around it! Today, we’re going to explore the steps you can take to make your images transparent for your Google Slides presentation.
Step 1: Open Google Slides
First, you’ll need to open Google Slides and navigate to the slide where you want to insert your transparent image.
Step 2: Select an Image
Click on ‘Insert’, then ‘Image’ to select the image you want to make transparent. You can upload an image from your computer, search the web, or choose from your Google Drive.
Step 3: Make the Image Transparent using a Third-Party Tool
Because Google Slides does not have a built-in tool for image transparency, we need to use a third-party tool. An example of such a tool is LunaPic.
To use LunaPic:
- Go to LunaPic’s website
- Click on ‘Upload’ to upload your image
- From the menu, select ‘Adjust’ and then ‘Transparency’
- Adjust the slider until you achieve your preferred level of transparency and then click ‘Apply’
- Finally, save your image by clicking on ‘File’ then ‘Save Image’
Step 4: Insert the Transparent Image into Google Slides
Once you have your transparent image, return to Google Slides and insert your newly transparent image by clicking on ‘Insert’, then ‘Image’, and finally ‘Upload from computer’ or ‘Google Drive’ (depending on where you saved your edited image).
Step 5: Adjust the Image to Your Liking
Now that your transparent image is in your slide, you can adjust its size and position as needed. Simply click and drag the image to move it, or click and drag the corners of the image to resize it.
And there you have it! That’s how you can make a transparent image for your Google Slides presentation. While it may seem like a bit of a workaround, this process is actually quite simple and effective. With a little bit of practice, you’ll be able to quickly and easily make your images transparent for any presentation!
