How to Apply Filters to the Pictures in Google Slides

How to Apply Filters to the Pictures in Google Slides | 프레젠테이션을 위한 빠른 팁 & 튜토리얼

In a presentation, images usually convey a lot of information. A good picture could help you connect with your audience and make them remember your speech for a long time. Sometimes, you could end up having several pictures without a significant visual consistency, but that can be remedied by using filters. In this Slidesgo School tutorial, you’ll learn how to apply filters to the pictures in your Google Slides presentation step by step.

Recoloring Pictures

  • Open your Google Slides presentation.
  • Select the picture you want to modify.
  • Go to the toolbar and click Format options → Recolor.
Recolor tab in Format options

You’ll see a list containing different presets to change the color of the picture:

Once the filter is chosen, you can modify its parameters:

  • Format options → Adjustments → Transparency. Drag the slider to make the image either more or less visible.
Adjusting the transparency
  • Format options → Adjustments → Brightness. Drag the slider to change the luminosity of the picture.

  • Format options → Adjustments → Contrast. Drag the slider to modify the intensity of the picture.

  • To reset the picture, just click the Reset button. The parameters will revert to their original state (but you’ll keep the recolor).

Here’s a little trick to get even a better result:

  • Create a duplicate of the picture and place it next to the original.
  • Apply the desired filter to the duplicate.

  • Adjust the transparency of the duplicate (which is on top). To do so, go to Format options → Adjustments → Transparency.

This trick will allow you to fine-tune the effect and make it more subtle without losing too much depth or volume, so you’ll be able to keep all the tones.

Recoloring Pictures Using Masks

  • Open your Google Slides presentation.
  • Create a new shape. To do so, click Insert → Shape → Shapes. Then choose the desired shape from the list.

As an example, let’s use a circle. Don’t forget to hold the Shift key to keep the proportions.

  • Now choose the color for this shape by clicking Fill color (the icon looks like a paint bucket).
Choosing a fill color
  • Adjust the transparency of the color to achieve a nice effect by clicking Fill color → Custom → Transparency.

  • Here's a comparison between the effect achieved with the mask and the original picture.
