A colleague asked me today about cropping a square image into a circle using Google Drawing. This process is called “masking,” and it can be done quickly and easily not only in Drawing, but also in Slides. In fact, you are not limited to masking your image with a circle; you can crop it into a number of different shapes. The illustrations below show the process in a drawing, but it works the same for images on slides.
You can choose from any of the four categories of masks. Select a category, then click on the shape you want.
You can reset your image and start over with the click of a button.
Express your creativity by using different shapes to mask your images.
