Google Slides is a great alternative for people that can’t or don’t want to use Microsoft Powerpoint. It has many of the same features, and is a fully-capable presentation application for many users.
Google Slides not only lets you make edits to your slides, even allowing you to duplicate entire slides if you wish, it also lets you add and edit pictures in your slides. But if you have added a picture and performed a number of edits on it, you might be a little concerned that you will have to do it again if you want to put a copy of that picture in another slide. Fortunately you are also able to copy pictures in Google Slides, which will even copy any of the effects that you have applied to that picture.
How to Duplicate an Image in One of the Slides of Your Google Slides Presentation
The steps in this article were performed in the desktop version of Google Chrome, but will also work in other desktop Web browsers. This guide assumes that you already have a picture in one of your slides that you would like to duplicate. Note that this will also duplicate any edits or effects that you have applied to the original image.
Step 1: Sign into your Google Drive and open the Google Slides presentation containing the picture that you want to copy.
Step 2: Navigate to the slide containing the picture, then click it once to select it.
Step 3: Click the Edit tab at the top of the window.
Step 4: Choose the Duplicate option.
Note that you can also duplicate a picture by selecting it, then pressing Ctrl + D on your keyboard.
Once the picture has been copied, you can move the copy around and make edits to it without affecting the original.
