How To Rotate An Image In Google Slides (Quick Guide)

You will often require adding images to your Google Slides presentation. Images can help break up the text, add some color, and make your presentation more visually appealing. Sometimes, you may need to rotate an image to fit in a particular space or change the orientation.

So, how do you rotate an image in Google Slides? It’s actually quite simple. Just follow these steps:

Step 1: Open the Presentation

First, open your Google Slides presentation in Google Drive. Then, select the image you wish to rotate.

Step 2: Open Format Options

Now you will see the Rotate tab under “Size and Rotation”. You will find several options to rotate the image, such as you can enter the angle to rotate, rotate at 90-degree, or flip the image.

Press the icon under 90-degree to rotate the image. You can keep pressing the icon until you get the image at proper orientation. That’s it; you have successfully rotated an image in Google Slides.

If you wish to change the rotation angle, you can do so by clicking on the “Custom” option and entering the desired angle in the box next to it.
