Adding a picture to a Google Docs file is as simple as clicking a button in the toolbar and finding the picture you want to insert. But that picture is going to be in your document in its original orientation, at its original size and transparency.
If you’ve already edited the picture in another program like Photoshop then that is probably not an issue, but if you haven’t done so you may need to make some edits to the picture so that it looks how you want it to look. Our guide below will show you how to adjust the transparency of a picture in Google Docs.
