Just like in Microsoft PowerPoint, Google Slides supports animations and transitions that will make these numbers and graphics look more than necessary. If you do not know how to add animations to Google Slides, you're in the right place. Read on to learn how to brighten your presentation by adding various animations to objects in Google Slides.
How to add animations in Google Slides
Adding animations to objects in Google Slides is a pretty simple process. Just follow these steps to add animations to any object:
Step 1: Open the presentation in which you want to add the animations.
2nd step: Select the slide with the objects you want to animate.
Step 3: Click Insert on the top toolbar to open the drop-down menu.
Step 4: Select the Animation option from the drop-down menu to open the Transitions panel.
The Transitions panel will appear to the right of your presentation. Using this panel, you will be able to add animations to specific objects and also add transitions between slides (for more information about this later).
Step 5: Now select the object you want to animate by clicking on it. You will know that the object is selected when it is surrounded by a blue box.
Step 6: Then click on '+' Select an object to animate & #39; in the Transitions panel to do the necessary.
Step 7: The object must now be added to the panel and you will be able to choose an animation by clicking on the first drop-down menu located just below.
Step 8: You can choose the trigger mode of the animation from the following drop-down menu. It allows you to play animation at click, just after the previous animation or next to the previous animation.
Step 9: The slider under the previous menu allows you to adjust the speed of the animation. You can move it to the left to slow down the animation or to the right to speed it up.
Once all this is in place, you can click the Play button to see what the animation looks like. If you do not like anything, you can easily go back to the Transitions panel and make the required changes.
And just like that, you animated an object in your Google Slides. While I animated the image in this example, you can use the same method for just about every object on your slide. Be sure to read the animations once before finalizing the changes.
How to add transitions in Google Slides
Transitions are animations between two slides that ensure that switching between slides does not seem too shocking. Adding transitions to Google Slides is as simple as adding animations. After all, they use the same Transitions panel. Just follow these simple steps to add transitions to Google Slides:
Step 1: Open the presentation that you want to edit, and then click Slide on the top toolbar.
2nd step: Select the Change Transition option from the drop-down menu to open the Transitions panel.
Step 3: Since you have not selected any objects, the animation option will not appear this time. Instead, you will see a drop-down menu in which you can select a variety of different transitions.
Step 4: Once you've selected a transition, you can also adjust the speed by moving the slider just below the drop-down menu. It works exactly like the one I mentioned earlier; left to slow down the animation and right to speed it up.
If you want to use the same transition between all slides, you can click the Apply button to all slides. But if you want different transitions, you will have to go to the next slide and repeat the process. Make sure to check the appearance of the animation by clicking the Play button after making any changes.
If you do not know if the slide is the transition or animation, you can check the Quick View column on the left. If you see a new icon (see the image below) next to your slide, it means that Google Slides has saved the animation.
Now, it's always good to know the basics of each software. That's why I've detailed the process in the steps above. However, if you want to save time, you can also open the Transitions panel for animations from the contextual context menu. To do this, select the object you want to animate, then right-click. Select animate in the context menu. The Transitions panel should appear immediately.
