Five Image Editing Features Built Into Google Slides

Regular readers of my blog probably know that I'm a big fan of using tools like Canva, Adobe Creative Cloud Express, and Pixlr to edit and enhance pictures. But sometimes those tools feel like they have almost too many options. Furthermore, some schools don't allow access to those tools because they would prefer that students use tools in Google Workspace. In both cases, it's worth knowing how to use the image editing features that are built into Google Slides. 

There are five image editing features in Google Slides that I always point out to students and to teachers who come to one of my workshops. Those features are color filtering, transparency and brightness adjustments, drop shadows and mirroring, cropping with shapes, and border adjustments. Watch this short video to see all of those features in use.
