Quick And Easy Steps To Add Hyperlinks To Images In Google Slides

If you’re not familiar with hyperlinks, they’re basically a link to a hypertext file or document which is typically activated by clicking on a particular image or text on your screen. If you often read articles or written documents on the internet, they’re often the only blue underlined text in a block of a paragraph.


If you’re working on a presentation in Google Slides and this is something you wish to apply but don’t know how to, I’m glad to say you’ve come across the perfect guide you need! As we often observe text hyperlinks, we’ll be focusing on embedding or attaching a link to a specific image you’ve inserted in Google Slides.

This can be done on both your desktop and mobile device, so it doesn’t actually matter where you’re working because included in this guide are the detailed steps you have to follow.

Adding Hyperlinks using the Computer

Adding hyperlinks in Google Slides can be done both on a desktop or mobile device. The process is actually just quite similar for both, but let’s thoroughly discuss the steps for each for you not to be confused.

1. Go to the presentation that you want to add a hyperlink into.

In adding a hyperlink to an image in your slide, you first have to choose an existing presentation you’ve already created to work on. If you’re just about to start with it, then go ahead and create one.

2. Select the slide where your chosen image is located.

In the panel located on the left side of the window, you will see the different slides you have in your presentation. Go through each of them and select a particular slide that contains the image you wish to add a hyperlink into.

3. Click on the image once to select it and look for the “insert link” icon in the tool bar.

Once you’re already in your preferred slide, click on the image. Afterward, you’ll see a blue outline around it once you have selected it. From there, click on the link icon on your toolbar to add a hyperlink to the specific image.

However, if this doesn’t work for you, there is still another method you can try which is by clicking on the “Insert” option in the menu bar and selecting “Link”. This will basically do the same thing as the previous one, so if you’re ever worried about any difference that might occur, there won’t be any.

4. Paste a link in the space provided then click Apply.

Now, a small pop-up window will appear below your selected image where you can paste the specific link you’d like to attach to the image. Once done, make sure to click the “Apply” button to save your changes.

Adding Hyperlinks on your Mobile

Now that we’ve discussed the process of adding hyperlinks when on your computer, let’s start learning about the step-by-step guide of doing the same thing on your mobile device.

1. Open the Google Slides application on your phone and choose the presentation you want to edit.

First, you have to launch the Google Slides application on your phone. Wait for it to open, scroll down, and look for the presentation you need to edit and tap on it.

2. Scroll down until you see the slide containing the image you want to add a hyperlink to.

All the slides in the specific presentation will appear. Among what’s shown, scroll down until you’re able to choose which slide to edit. Click that particular slide and select the option “Edit Slide.”

3. Click the image once and options will appear.

If you’re already editing the slide, click on the image and wait until several options appear. You have to click the right arrow in all the options shown for you to see the “Insert link” button.

4. Paste the link on the space and click the checkmark on the upper right.

You need to paste the link you want to attach to the particular image. After that, click the checkmark which you’ll see on the upper right corner of your screen to apply all the changes you’ve done.

Make Sites More Accessible with Hyperlinks

You might not have noticed this, but hyperlinks are often added to texts or phrases written in documents or articles. Well, not to assume but it could probably be because a lot of people may have been unaware of the fact that links can also be embedded into images and so, resulting in only a few people practicing it. Hyperlinks are very helpful and make everything convenient for a person because they won’t need to open another tab and search for a particular link they need to see.

Thus, it’s really a good thing to embed links to elements in a presentation and other documents as well!
