Cropping & Framing
Try not to crop people at any joints (knees, waist, elbows, toes, fingers, ankles, or wrists), as well as eyes and chin. Check out this infographic for more details.
Crop out distracting elements on the edges wherever possible.
Please refer to the photography guidelines at Blueprints, written by our very own designers. :)
Two helpful articles (also linked in above article):
Replace an Existing Image
- Right-Click the placeholder, select Replace image and the location of your image file.
- Once the image is placed, format it by Right-Clicking the image and selecting Crop image.
When cropping, the Black bordered box is the cropping area, or the picture frame around the portion of the image you want to show. The Blue bordered box is the size of the image itself. To resize images, always drag the corners to prevent any skewing.
Recolor an Image
- Right-Click the image you want to recolor and select Format options...
- Under the Recolor dropdown, select an appropriate recoloring option.
Recoloring is useful when creating contrast between text and a background image. We recommend using Light 1-3, Dark 1-5, and Grayscale to adjust images that don’t blend well with the blue overlays.
- Upload an SVG to Google Drive and open the SVG with CloudConvert.
- Change the export format to emf under vector and Start Conversion. Once the file has been converted, select Show file.
- Open the emf file with Google Drawings under Connected apps
- Copy the vectorized image in Google Drawings
- Paste the vectorized image directly into your Google Slide
