Have you ever wondered how to create a circular or spherical image without using a cropping tool online? Fitting images into different shapes on Google Slides has never been easier. For projects, presentations, or even portraits, you can simply take your portrait/landscape photographs and fit them into the hundreds of shapes that Google Slides offers. 


Instead of going to photo-croppers online, Google Slides allows you to fit your photos perfectly, free of cost. Once you have your crafted picture, you can save that picture to your drive, or copy-and-paste it on any document, presentation, or sheet. 


Adding pictures with dimensions that aren’t your traditional square 6x6 or 4x4 makes your work more interesting and engaging. The two tools in Google Slides, picture and shape, allows you to customize your image by cropping, reordering, coloring, and adding other formatting. 


To find out exactly how you can fit your image into a shape on Google Slides, follow the steps down below. 

How to Fit Images into Shapes on Google Slides

  1. Open a new Google Slide and upload a picture to a blank slide
  2. Click on the Image 
  3. In the toolbar, click the dropdown arrow on Mask Image 

  1. Click on any shape you want 

Without having to use an online cropping tool, the Mask tool on Google Slides allows you to edit pictures in a much more time-efficient manner. The newly-shaped picture adds some pop and glamour to your presentation. In a few simple steps, you can edit any picture to fit any shape you want.
