How to Add an Image to a Google Doc
Google Docs is a great, free word processing application provided by Google as a competitor to Microsoft Word. While Word may have some additional features that Google Docs does not provide, because Google Docs is entirely cloud-based, it can offer some features that Microsoft Word can't include. For instance, there are a variety of ways to add images to a Google Doc.
The easiest way to add an image to a Google Doc is to simply drag and drop an image from your computer into the document in your browser window. Google Docs will automatically add that image to your document. Once that image is inserted into your document, you can change its size, move it, or annotate it.
There are other ways to add images to a Google Doc as well. If you click on the 'Insert' button in the toolbar at the top of the Google Doc window, there will be an image section that has options to add an image from your Google Drive account, Google Photos, from a website link, or directly from your phone.
Because Google Docs is completely cloud-based, multiple people can open and edit a document at the same time. Notice that the last option for adding an image to a Google Doc is from your phone's camera. That means while you are editing a document on your computer, you can open that same document on your phone, take a picture on your phone and insert it into that document, and have that image appear in real-time on your computer.
Google Docs is a great word processing application that provides a ton of collaboration features. The couple of ways mentioned above for adding images to a Google Doc are only a few examples of those collaboration features.
