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, because Slides will let you crop, apply shape masks, and add borders to your images right within your presentation. Cropping To crop an image, select it and click on the crop image icon in the toolbar. Then drag the corners to your desired crop size and hit enter to make the crop. Applying masks To crop your image to a particular shape, apply a mask from the pull-down menu next to the crop icon.
