How to Wrap Text on Google Slides (Quick Guide)

You may want to add an image on your slide alongside some texts to bring more visual aids to the presentation, but what if half of the text is cut off because the image is blocking it. This is where text wrapping comes in handy.

The good news is you can wrap the text around the image on Google Slides so that the texts are not cut off, and the whole slide looks neater. Let’s see how you can wrap text on Google Slides.

Step 1: Open the Slide

Open your Google Slides presentation. Go to the Slide that contains the image with overlaying text. Make sure that the image is in the right place where you want to position it on the slide.

Or, if you want to add a new photo, open the preferred slide and press Insert from the top menu. Then select Image and choose the image source to import the image. (You can upload the image from your computer, through an URL, Google Photos, and other sources.)

Step 2: Press on the Textbox

Now, if you already have text in the slide, there will be a textbox containing the texts. Place your cursor on the textbox, and it will show a blue border around it.

If the text is not already on the slide, press on the Text box(it looks like a T, marked green in the above screenshot) from the top left corner. It will create a textbox on the slide for you to start typing texts inside it.

Step 3: Format the Text box

Now you can easily change the textbox size and position by dragging the blue border. If you want to move the text box around the slide, simply press on it and hold, then without releasing your mouse, drag the textbox to your desired position.

Step 4: Adding Multiple Text box

You can also add multiple text boxes and format them according to your needs. This is helpful when you want to have different parts of texts on different sides of the image or in different corners of the slide.

To do this, press the Textbox button(which looks like a T) from the top left corner and hover your mouse on the slide. Then, click on the place where you want to add the text box and start typing. You can then format this text box as we did in Step 3 above.


That’s it! You now know how to wrap text around an image on Google Slides. By following the steps above, you can easily add images and texts on the same slide without worrying about the texts getting cut off. Experiment with different positions and sizes of text boxes to create an attractive and informative slide.
