Use a professionally designed template

Instead of starting from scratch, choose one of the Google Slide designs and customize it to suit your needs.

Below are several screenshots of the title slide for the same presentation using different themes.

Notice how changing the theme for the three slides above completely changes the design.

Crop or hide images

Once you’ve found a good source of high-quality images or created your own, you can focus on the relevant parts of the image or graphic using the crop tool.

Crop the edges of the image, remove unnecessary parts, or add a consistent design by cropping all images to shape (masking).

Cropped images will make your presentation more fun, creative, and convincing.

Get creative with fonts

Besides changing the size, type, and color of the font, you can use other creative ways to make your text stand out. You can also create your own fonts to import into your project.

Then get creative and try adding drop shadow to the text to draw attention to it.

Follow these steps to create a drag-and-drop effect of text using two text boxes.

Photo wallpapers

Google Slides background can be color or image. Images illustrate a point of view, grab the audience’s attention, and are used as a symbol to represent a concept – often better than plain text.

Use an image as a background to make your Google Slides presentations more attractive. / ul>

Important note: as you can see in the screenshot above, please note the image copyright.

Only use images that you are licensed to use, or those that are free or free to use, with attribution. You can do a reverse image search to find out more about any stock images you use to make sure you are giving the correct attribution.

You may need to change the position and color of the text to make it stand out from the background image.

Background images cannot be resized or moved. However, they can be adjusted for transparency, brightness and contrast.

Click the slide, not the item. Select Format Options. In the right side panel that opens, click Adjustments. Play around with these and other settings shown in the image above to get the desired result.

Presentations don’t have to be boring and boring. Use some of these tips to create stunning Google slides that will pique your audience’s interest.
