How To Edit Images Inside Google Docs

I just opened a Google Doc and saw this nice update that allows us to edit images inside Google Docs.

 

A couple of months ago Google added the ability to edit images inside Presentations and Google Drawing. This update allows you edit images inside Google Docs in the same way you can edit images in Presentations.

You can:

  • Crop images
  • Crop images into a shape
  • Add borders

To see Google’s instructions on how to use each of these functions go HERE These edit features are fairly basic.  If you are looking for a great Chrome App for more advanced editing of images, check out Pixlr
