Any idea on how to add a drop shadow to an element on Goolge Slides? I have googled a lot and found a couple of websites explaining how to add a drop shadow to a text but no leads on how to add it to an element. I saw a slide which had drop shadow and saved it for reference but couldn't find out the way to replicate it.
One work around so you can use the effect on other images is to use the "Paint format" button to copy the effect. Select the image with the shadow, click the "Paint format" button, then click another image you want the shadow on.
Another work around is to copy the image and "replace image", which will switch out the photo but keep the shadow.
You're not able to directly add drop shadows for images in Google Slides.
The drop shadow was made in a different slide making program like PowerPoint and the file was uploaded to the Drive. The user then opened the PowerPoint file with Slides and the shadow is stilled applied like it would be in PowerPoint.
This feature is now standard available in Google slides for both images and shapes.
All you need to do is Right-click on the object > format options > drop shadow.
Found a hack for this...
1) Copy the image from google sheets and paste to a doc in Keynote
2) add the required image shadow / borders / effects
3) Copy this new Keynote image and past back into Google Sheets
