When designing a presentation in Google Slides, sometimes you may need to remove a transparent background from an image to make it blend in seamlessly with your slides. While Google Slides does not directly offer an option to remove a transparent background, there is a simple workaround that you can use. In this blog post, we will walk you through the process of removing a transparent background from an image in Google Slides.
Steps to Remove Transparent Background in Google Slides
Step 1: Open Your Google Slides Presentation
The first step is to open the Google Slides presentation where the image with the transparent background is or will be added.
Step 2: Insert or Select the Image
Now, if you haven’t done so already, you need to insert the image with the transparent background into your slide. To do this, click on the Insert tab in the toolbar at the top of the screen, then select Image, and upload your image.
Step 3: Use the Image Options
Once the image is selected, click on the Format options button on the toolbar. This will open the Format options sidebar on the right side of the screen.
Step 4: Adjust the Image Transparency
Next, under the Adjustments section, you’ll see a slider for Transparency. You can move this slider to adjust the transparency of your image. If you want to remove the transparent background completely, you would move the slider to 0%.
Please note that this method will not actually remove the transparent background from the image, but it will make the image appear as if it does not have a transparent background when viewed in Google Slides. If you need to truly remove the transparent background from an image, you might need to use an image editing software like Photoshop or an online tool like remove.bg.
Although Google Slides doesn’t have a built-in feature to remove a transparent background, the transparency adjusting tool can be used as an effective workaround for this issue. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it will make your images look great in your presentation.
