New- Google Docs Now Lets You Crop, Rotate, and Add Borders to Images

May 6, 2014
Google rolled out today a new update to Google Docs allowing users to adjust and customize images within their Google Docs. If you remember these very same functionalities were added to Google Slide a few weeks ago.

Cropping images allows you to delete parts of an image you don't want others to see and/or emphasize certain parts of the image in your document or presentation.

 Here is how to crop images in Google Docs:




  • Open your document or presentation.
  • Select an image.
  • Click the Crop button.
  • Drag and drop the the blue handles until the image has been cropped the way you want. A shadow of the original image will be present to help you see how much you are cropping.
  • Click Enter on your keyboard or click back onto your document or slide to save the cropped image.
Here is how you can add a border to an image :




  • Open your document or presentation.
  • Select an image.
  • Click the Line color button.
  • Choose a color or click Custom to create your own.
  • Your border will be applied. Click off of the image to continue working on the document or slide.
