If you want to add a little personality to your Google Slides presentation, you can insert a Google Drawing. Google Drawings is a program that lets you create and edit simple drawings, and you can insert them into your Slides document just like any other image.
In this quick guide, you’ll learn how to insert Google Drawing into Google Slides, whether it’s a simple shape or a more complex drawing like a new product idea or logo design.
Google Slides doesn't have a built-in option to insert Google Drawing. This is because there’s no direct access from Google Drive to insert drawings into Google Slides.
But there are two workaround ways you can use to insert drawing in Slides. If you haven’t used the Google Drawings app, you can install it from the Google Apps web store.
Follow the step-by-step guide below to do it.
The first method is to publish the Google Drawing and then insert a link to it in Slides.
You can also resize the drawing image in Slides. However, if you edit the image in Google Drawings, the changes won’t be applied in Google Slides. To change the image, you would have to edit the image in Google Drawings and then copy the link with the steps above.
