Most images I insert in my presentations are not modified or compressed by Google Slides.

But some are compressed with loss of quality, like this one:

Slide with compressed image: I can't find the reason why these images specifically are compressed (file format, image passing a certain thresold of size, dimensions... ?).

This is cumbersome as the images are compressed too much, to the point where the text on the screenshot is not visible anymore...

Do you have any idea how to avoid this ?

  • Google tends to bury images that are low res so that you can't see the individual pixels. – Luke the Geek Dec 14 '18 at 2:10

When I added images that were larger (dimensions-wise) than the slide size, Google Slides scaled the image to fit on the slide and downsampled the image accordingly. If I scaled the image to be larger (closer to its original size) and cropped it in Google Slides, then it came out pixelated.

I was able to avoid this by first cropping the image in another program, then uploading the cropped image to Google Slides
