How To Transparent Image In Google Slides

Google Slides is a popular choice for creating presentations due to its ease of use and collaborative features. One aspect that users often struggle with is modifying images within their slides, specifically making an image transparent. In this blog post, we’ll walk through a step-by-step guide on how to make an image transparent in Google Slides.

Step 1: Upload Your Image

The first step is to upload the image to your Google Slides document. You can do this by clicking on the “Insert” button on the top toolbar, followed by “Image” then “Upload from computer“. Navigate to where your image is saved and click “Open“.

Step 2: Select the Image

Once your image is on the slide, click on it to select it. You’ll know it’s selected when you see small blue squares or ‘handles’ around the edges of the image.

Step 3: Adjust Transparency

With your image selected, navigate to the toolbar at the top of the page. Click on the “Format Options” button, which should open a sidebar on the right side of the screen. In this sidebar, you’ll see a variety of options for modifying your image.

Look for the “Adjustments” section in this sidebar. There should be a slider here labelled “Transparency“. Dragging this slider to the right will increase the transparency of your image, making it see-through. The further you drag it, the more transparent your image will become.

Step 4: Apply and Enjoy

Once you are satisfied with the level of transparency, simply click anywhere outside the sidebar to apply your changes. Et voila! You have successfully made an image transparent in Google Slides.


And there you have it! Four simple steps to making an image transparent in Google Slides. Although Google Slides might not have as many image editing capabilities as some other programs, it does offer a good range of options for basic edits. Remember, mastering tools like these can really make your presentations stand out. Happy slide making!
