Can I Use Google Images In A Powerpoint?

Of course, you can use Google images in a PowerPoint presentation. This article will show you how. After you learn to use Google images in your presentation, you can also read up the benefits and importance of images to improve the effectiveness and power of your presentation.

How to use Google images in a PowerPoint presentation

  • Start PowerPoint on your PC or laptop.

  • Open a blank presentation

  • Find the image you want to copy from Google Images

  • Copy the image to the clipboard by right-clicking on the image and clicking the "copy" option

  • Now, go to the blank presentation and click on the area where you want the Google image copied

  • Go to the Home tab and choose the "Paste" option

  • The image will appear on the area you selected

  • Start PowerPoint on your PC or laptop.

  • Open a blank presentation

  • Find the image you want to copy from Google Images

Why do you use images in a presentation?

People use images in their presentation for the following reasons: (yes, some of the reasons are not really sound, yet many people use these reasons for adding images)

  • To make it look better

  • To break the tedium of reading too much of text

  • You like the image

  • The image helps in improving the effectiveness of the message

  • To add some amount of humor

  • Because you believe all presentations must have images

  • Because you think everybody does it and hence you should too

Now, that you can see some of the reasons for using images on a presentation are quite unreasonable, it makes sense for you to know the role of images in a presentation. This will help you decide whether an image is needed at a particular point of your presentation or not.

Role of images in a PowerPoint presentation

A good well-placed and well-chosen image helps your audience to get the message more clearly and more powerfully.

For example, if the text on a presentation reads like this: "Our ERP solution delivers the highest levels of Data Security." An image of a strong and unbroken chain with a strong lock on it will add some power to the message. The visual of the chain and key will strengthen the audience's belief in your message.

Therefore, an image should enhance your text and not take over the importance of the text message. Do not add an image simply because it is a nice image and you like it. Add it only if it is relevant and enhances the power and effectiveness of your message.

In the above example, if you removed the image of the chain and key, it could reduce the effectiveness of the message you are trying to convey. Therefore, another good reason to insert an image is if its absence takes away the power, then the image is a necessity.

Some Practices to avoid while adding images to your presentation

  • Do not use blurry, pixelated and poor quality images. Your presentation will look unprofessional as well as uninteresting while casting you as an incompetent student

  • Do not use miniscule and tiny images that the audience cannot see or make out clearly. The purpose of having the image on the presentation is lost if you use tiny ones

  • Do not use too many visuals and images as an overcrowd can be a huge put-off as well as take the audience attention away from the important message that you are trying to convey in your presentation

  • Make sure you arrange multiple images effectively and without cluttering. It is important to know the art of arranging many pictures on one screen aesthetically. Avoid this if you are not clear about the technicalities involved.

  • Avoid using cliparts that do not add value to your presentation. Cliparts can come across as cartoony and tacky rendering your presentation an unprofessional profile

  • Never use images with a watermark. Even if the watermark is very small, you run the risk of someone in the audience catching it and then your reputation for integrity could take a beating. If you still have to use the image, make sure you pay for it and buy it for your use.

  • Avoid flashy and overtly colorful backgrounds. It can be a huge put-off for the audience
