A change of perspective is always good! Do you want your public to look at your slides in a new way? Changing slides orientation will do the work. In this tutorial you’re going to learn how to go from horizontal slides, to vertical ones (and vice versa!). 

In order to change to portrait orientation in Google Slides, you only need to follow three simple steps:

  1. Go to FilePage Setup. Here, you can change the format, but Google Slides does not have a premade vertical option.
  2. Click on Custom and you will be able to change the actual size of the canvas. The value on the left represents how wide your slide will be, and the one on the right is how tall. You can choose the values you want, but we recommend just swapping the values, this way the slide will be the same size but it will be in portrait mode.
  3. Click Apply, now all of your slides will be vertical!

Have you changed your mind and want to know how to change the slide orientation again? This time it is even easier, you only need to select any of the three presets on Page Setup.

Pro tip: you can create a printable slide, if you select 21.4 cm x 29.7 cm. Those are the values for a standard A4 sheet of paper. 

Now your creations will know no barriers, neither horizontal nor vertical! Take a look at our web and choose a template to start practising. Or, if you want to keep learning, read one of our many Google Slides Tutorials
