Google Docs is the cloud-based word processing system offered by Google. Despite its many strengths, Docs has a downside: it has a relatively limited feature set. Unlike Microsoft Word, which has a huge list of functions, Google Docs focuses on doing a few basic things and getting them done right. For 99% of users 99% of the time, this is more than enough. However, sometimes, you need Google Docs for fun, and at such times, it can disappoint you.

One feature that many users want Google Docs to provide is the ability to add funds. Unfortunately, Docs does not support background images in your documents directly. However, there are some solutions that will allow you to add a background image to Docs, and in this article, I will show you how.

Insert images into a Google document

The easiest way to insert an image is to click and drag. Simply find the image you want to insert and drag it from your computer’s file browser to the browser window, wherever you want the image to be in your document. The image will load and appear right where you dragged it.

However, there are a few more ways to add images. Go to Insert> Image in the menu bar and you will see some options:

  • You can upload from your computer, which means that you will be able to browse for the file on your file system.
  • You can also search the web with Google Images, directly in a handy sidebar. Please note that images you find this way are likely to be copyrighted, so do not rely on this for anything that is publicly posted.
  • You can insert any image stored in your Google Drive.
  • You can insert any photo from your Google Photos account.
  • If you have a direct URL for an image, you can use it to embed it.
  • You can take a photo with your device’s camera.

Don’t be overwhelmed – for the most part, you’re probably going to click and drag images from your computer.

Resize and organize images in Google Docs

You can change the size by clicking and dragging the blue squares at the corners and sides of the image frame. Then you will have to decide how your image will relate to the text: inline, wrapping text, or splitting text.

The first option, Online, treats the image as if it were a piece of text. The words will appear just before and after the image.

This is useful for small images, such as symbols or emoji, that you want to incorporate into the text itself.

The second option, Wrap Text, will wrap the text around your image.

The third option, Break Text, will force the text to appear below and above the image.

Resize your image and then play around with these three options until everything looks good.

Add a border to an image in Google Docs

Some specific elements of the image appear on the toolbar when an image is selected. The button on the left, which looks like a pencil, will add a border to your image. You can choose any color for your border, as seen above. You can also choose how thick the border should be using the next button. Finally, you can choose whether the border should be solid or have a pattern using the button below. Adjust your border until it looks exactly how you want it. I am quite happy with mine.

Crop and edit images in Google Docs

You can do very basic image editing in Google Docs. First, there is cropping, which allows you to reframe the image. You can start by clicking the crop button, which is to the right of the border tools described above.

You can now move the edge of your image, allowing you to crop the sides. This is very useful if you want to focus less on the landscape and more on the very good dog that is the actual subject of the image.

You can also adjust the levels and change the color of the image bluntly. Click Image Options on the toolbar and a sidebar will appear.

The Recolor option, as far as I know, will completely erase the image with a certain color. More interesting are the bars to adjust transparency, brightness and contrast. Feel free to mess around – the Reset button can restore your image to how it looked before you messed with it.
