This tutorial shows you how to make the background image transparent in Google Slides. There are many other ways to do this such as using the HTML5
tag, but this is the easiest and most effective way.
If you want to do something similar, you can also use the HTML5 tag (for images) and the CSS3 background-attachment property (for videos).
Google is really getting into the idea of making slides transparent. Their latest slide, Google Slides 12, now includes the ability to make background images transparent. This is great because background images (and even inline images) are often distracting and make slides difficult to read. I like the idea that you can make background images transparent and still have them be visible under each slide.
The cool thing about this new CSS3 background-attachment property is that it works on images and even video elements. I mean, how many people use backgrounds in their slides so let’s make that a thing as well.
Background images and even inline images are hard to read because they are always visible and distracting. The ability to make background images transparent and still have them be visible under each slide is also great because it makes it easier for people to read the slides.
Background images are great for their ability to be readable but they can also be confusing to look at because they are always on top of the image itself. And with the new background-attachment property I can make a background image transparent and still have it be visible underneath each slide.
So how do you make background images transparent? If you’re using a background image program, you can do that by using the “transparent” option, but if you don’t have a background image program, you can do it without much trouble. I just used Cmd+Shift+T to make all my background images transparent. But you could also just do “background.
The one feature that I think is the most useful on google slide pages is the “background transparency”. Basically, if you’re using the transparency option, whatever content you want to appear behind your background image will still be visible, so you never have to worry about how to get your entire slide to be transparent.
Another way of getting the background to be transparent is to use the transparency option on your background image. This will make your background image transparent, and all that background content behind it will also be transparent.
