If you want to qualitatively, and the main thing is to make presentations quickly, then it is definitely Google presentations. This wonderful program is created exactly for this purpose.
No less interesting is to work in Google document. This saves you time, allows you to work online, and stores everything in the cloud. In Google document, you can work with images by selecting different effects and positions on pages. It also allows you to work with texts by setting different styles, fonts, sizes, colours, directions, creating formulas and symbols.
Google docs and Google Slides are quite powerful systems that work wherever you can connect to the Internet. The big advantage is that they are free and have many features.
But before the start, you need to learn and understand what features Google presentation and Google document provides, what are the subtleties and how to work with this program.
So, first, we suggest you figure out how to work with texts in Google Slides. Because often there are questions of how to make the right font, rotate the text, edit it, do with a slope. We hope that the following information will help you understand and use Google presentations.
You may do this in a few minutes.
An example can be seen on the following screenshots:
The outline of the text that will be different color from the filling of the text itself helps to make some dramatic looking text. The Word art function may be the best option for this task. To make a text path, you need to use Word Art, because this is where the text is not limited to font size and color. The same function is available in Power Point. We suggest you compare the functions and features of the two programs.

In Power Paint there are more types of text that you can use to make your presentation better. But don’t forget that the availability of features depends on the software update and the version you use. So keep in mind that in Google Slides you can apply the Word Art option regardless of the version, and so on.
Here is a short gif showing the process in Google Slides:
Creating text boxes in Google docs is a great way to highlight information (quotes, formulas, captions) and easily move it. You can do it in a few minutes by doing this:
You may see an example on the following short gif:
Curve the text means to make it unusual and original. Unfortunately, Google Slides doesn’t have the advanced features of Word art. But as a way out of this situation, you can create curved text in Microsoft Office Word and copy it to your Google presentation. This will take some time. The main thing is the presence of Microsoft Office Word and advanced features of Word art.
If that is the way you like, you should do it this way:
The result could be this:
Placing text in Google documents is common. You can adjust the font, color, position, but the rotation text will have a greater effect in any direction. But you won’t find the button that does it.

Images are an integral part of every presentation. It would seem to be easy to download and insert a picture. But in Google presentation and Google document there are many features, techniques, and ways to manage the images that will help you achieve the desired result. With the help of Google you can make an inscription on the image, caption it, make the image a background and so on.
We suggest you learn more about how to work with images in Google document. In the following instructions you will find the most popular ways of working with images in Google presentation and Google document.
You may use different programmes, editor and effects to add a text over a photo. But again, this will be done easily in Google documents. This will not take long. Follow these steps:

The image with the caption is very informative and gives a clear idea of what the image is/where it comes from/ what it means. This can be done in both Google docs and Google Slides. We suggest you to pay attention to two variants. And you will be able to choose which one will be easier for you.
|Google document||Google presentation|
|To add a caption in Google docs, you need to do the following:|
As you can see, the image and text are one picture.
|The second way is to create an image with a separate caption. You can do this in a few steps:|
Both ways are convenient, which one to choose depends on your preference and on what kind of caption you need.

But we suggest you to compare how you can make image a background in Google document and in Google presentation. You may choose the way that will seem easier and more convenient to you. This process takes about a couple of minutes.
So, pay your attention to the following:

The text wrapping feature helps to avoid the problem when an image stays on top of the text, so you can’t read it. To wrap text in Google Slides, you need to add an image and resize to match your needs. Then you need to select the text and resize to avoid making it go under the image.
Text outlining helps to make people pay attention to a certain part of your text – you can change the text color. When you add some text, you need to find two icons on the top bar – the paint can and a pencil. The paint can is the background color and the pencil icon is the outline color. The outline can be considered as the edge of letters, while background may be considered as the space located within the outlines of the letters.
To flip an image, you need to do three simple steps:
1. Add an image (you can upload it or just drag and drop)
2. Select the image (it will be outlined with the blue color)
3. Click “Arrange” (the top bar), then click “Rotate” and you will have several options. You can rotate clock or counter-clockwise, flip it vertically or horizontally. Select the option you need. That’s it.
If you want to create a nice transparent background, you need to do the following:
1. Add the image you want to use as a background – you can use the insert option or just drag and drop it
2. Resize the added image so it covers the whole slide
3. Click “Format Options” (it’s under the top tab)
4. Select “Adjustment”
5. A tab “Format options” will appear on the right side – find the tab “Transparency” and click it
6. Use the slider to adjust image transparency
