Most of the time, a slide is more impactful when you combine text with images. You can use both to provide context, explain a process with a visual example or make the content more interesting overall.

When text and image are present at the same time, it’s best if they don’t overlap. So you might want to wrap the text properly, which looks nicer and solves this issue. As with PowerPoint, Google Slides does not have an option to do this, but with some smart positioning of text boxes, you can achieve a similar result.

What Is Text Wrapping and Why Use It?

Text wrapping, as its name suggests, is a feature that makes your text wrap around other elements present in the slide, mainly images. In Google Slides, it requires careful positioning of your text boxes, but the best thing is that the text automatically adjusts to the shape of its corresponding box.

Wrapping Text Around an Image in Google Slides

Let’s say you’ve downloaded our Cute Cats template and you’d like to make the most of one of the pictures included to provide information about a cat species in particular.

For example, this slide has an image of a cat and quite some text. Let’s see how we can do it so that the text wraps around the image and makes use of the empty space below the photo.

Image and text

First, select the text box and cut part of the text. In this example, we’ll cut the part that begins with “Neptune”. Remember that you can cut it by pressing Ctrl + X or by clicking Edit > Cut after selecting the text.

Now, we need a new text box for the part that we’ve just cut. To create it, click Insert > Text box. The cursor will change to a cross. Click and drag to draw the shape of the new text box.

Now, as with any text box, you can modify its shape by dragging one of the handles. This will allow you to adjust the position of the text. Besides, if you wish to change other settings, such as color, size or the font, we have a tutorial for Google Slides that will teach you very quickly!

As you can see, it’s just a matter of positioning and creativity. Of course, it will depend on the shape of the image and how long the text is. You can try this with our 100% editable templates for Google Slides. Have a look and download the one you prefer!
