Images are a vital part of any good presentation. When deciding which image to use, it is a good idea to try to use the highest quality picture you can. Blurry, low-quality images do not make your presentation look professional.
There are several ways to insert images into your presentation. In this lesson, we will review a couple of options.
Finding an image by searching
Let's begin by searching Google for an appropriate image.
To move to the correct slide, in the Slide panel,
Click the slide titled, "Adding an Image to the Presentation"
To open the Search for Images panel, in the menu bar,
Click Insert, Click Image, Click Search the web
The Search for Images panel opens. This panel provides an easy way to search Google Images for appropriate images. In theory, all of the images found while working in Google Slides should be labeled for reuse. However, copyright can be tricky. Always confirm that you have permission to use an image and always give the owner of the image attribution.

To open the Insert Image panel, if necessary, on the menu bar,
