One of the most time-consuming parts of creating printables for our students is uploading images to Google Slides. It's very easy to fall into the trap of uploading them one at a time, which really takes up so much of our day.
Let's take a quick look at how many steps it takes to upload a single image file into Google Slides.
UPLOADING IMAGES ONE AT A TIME
The image will automatically fill the Google Slide and need to be resized:
Finish adjusting the image to the size you need.
And that's all just for ONE image!
Repeat ALL those steps again for the next pieces of clipart.
Ugh! Too many steps!
UPLOADING IMAGES ALL AT ONCE
2. Select ALL of your clipart at once by clicking on one image, holding the Shift key, then clicking on the last image in the list (this selects everything at once quickly):
3. All images will be uploaded into your Google Slide instantly!
They will be automatically selected when they are uploaded (you can see this by the blue lines around each image). To resize them all at once, click on the diagonal handle and hold the Shift key while you size the images down a bit:
4. Fine-tune the image sizes with the Format Options menu:
And that's it!
Uploading and resizing all your images at once is going to save you SO much time.
I hope this helps if you haven't tried uploading all at once before...thanks for visiting my blog!
Go to Insert > Image > Upload from computer (that's a few steps right there!):
Navigate to your clipart and select the image:
