How many of you out there actually make use of Google Drive on a daily basis? I know I do, and there is nothing quite like firing up a quick text document, or a spreadsheet to keep track of where every single dollar and penny have gone to throughout the course of a day in order to be a more responsible family man. Well, for those who actually store your presentation slides within Google Drive itself, here is some good news that will perk up your day – Google Drive now enables you to edit images in Slides itself.
This means that users are able to crop, apply shape masks, and add borders directly to images in Slides and Drawings presentations. This would come in handy, since I am quite sure that those of us who frequently come up with slides tend to find out that the photos that were thrown into the mix more often than not needed a little bit of touch up here and there. Prior to this announcement, users had no choice but to rely on an external image editing program.
Google Drive product manager Brian Levee shared, “Google Slides and Drawings make it easy for you to tell a story and share your ideas. And a big part of storytelling is the images you use to bring a concept to life. Now it’s even easier to get those images just right.” This ability ought to appear in a few hours’ time, if it hasn’t done so already. [Press Release]
