How to add stock images to Google Docs
Add some artwork to your documents for creative fliers, classroom materials and more.
Google Docs has the ability to add stock images to enhance the creative feel of your documents.
If you're planning to design a flier for an event, creating classroom materials, or just want to add an image to a document you're writing, here are the steps to make it happen:
Step 1: Open a Web browser to your Google Docs account.
Step 2: Click on either the Insert menu and then Image
- OR - click the small icon that looks like a landscape picture with mountains.
Step 3: Choose Stock photos from the menu on the left.
Step 4: Type the subject of the images you're seeking into the search box.
Step 5: Click on a photo to highlight it and click the Select button in the bottom right-hand corner.
Step 6: Adjust the size of the image by clicking on it and then dragging the dots on the outline of the image.
Step 7: Click and hold to drag the image somewhere else within the document.
For those who use Google Docs to write personal entries: the stock images are great for adding a visual to your memories when you don't have any of your own photos to include.
