How to Arrange Objects in Google Slides

Arrange Objects

You can easily arrange the various objects on a slide to fit your needs.

Rotate an Object

When you rotate an object, you turn it around its center. You can either rotate objects in 90-degree increments or use the rotation handle to freely rotate an object.

  1. Select an image.
  2. In addition to the resizing handles that appear on the border, a rotation handle will appear just outside of the object.

  3. Click and drag the rotation handle.
