Google Slides Makes Finding Images Easier

Posted on 9/27/2017 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Both Shutterstock and Adobe Stock have announced that users of Google Slides  can now access their collections directly. This could result in more image uses for photographers with images in both collections.

Google Slides is a presentation editor in the Google Docs and Drive productivity suite. Google Slides are presented in a linear fashion, where slides appear in order (unless links or other transitions are added). It affords real time collaboration between editors as well as different options for sharing the presentations. Because the presentations are in the cloud and associated with a Google account, users and owners of Google Slides can access them at any computer without having to carry around a flash drive. For the Google Slides getting started guide check out this link.

Google is the first partner to integrate the Shutterstock Editor API, the only application to feature both image editing and licensing capabilities directly within the Slides program.

Slides users now have the ability to search and license more than 150 million images and edit any visual content (their own or Shutterstock) within their presentation to add filters, text, logos, product imagery and more.

This improved workflow for content creators is essential for marketers who are challenged with keeping up with the growing demand for engaging, visual content by bringing our vast collection and editing tools to where they are already working on quick and compelling design edits.

Here’s how you can get the most out of this exciting new add-on:

Search: Perform a keyword search or browse curated collections available directly inside the add-on panel. You can even use Visual Search powered by Adobe Sensei to find high-quality, royalty-free results that match the color, tone and composition of your uploaded sample -- all you need to do is drag and drop an image onto the search bar!



Templates: Make your work that much better and your life that much easier with the many template options (pitches, portfolios and other pre-made presentations) available.

Preview and License: Easily insert a preview image into your layout to test different options as you work and collaborate on your presentations.
