Use Draw and Slides to Publish - Replace Paper!

Session 3: 2:15pm-3:45pm (Friday March 01, 2024)



Need to create a business card or an online newsletter? How about creating an image that isn’t fuzzy? Or make your own image to insert into any type of document? Attend this session to discover all the voodoo you can do with Google’s Draw and Slides tool beyond presentations! Topics will include using different layouts for print including business card, brochure, poster, and flyers; using color, shape, and line tools to create images for instruction or programs; utilizing the Draw app to curtail screenshot “fuzz,” downloading images as PNG or JPG files; and more as time allows. If you can imagine it published online or printed on paper, you can create it in Google Slides and Draw. Bring a device to this session!
