Do you want to use the Pixton Add-On with Google Slides? I'll explain how!

In your Google Slide, navigate to the top bar to find the Ass-Ons button.

If Pixton Comics is already there, just click on it and then check the right side of your screen.

If you don't have Pixton Comics added yet, click Get add-ons.

When you click Get add-ons, you'll get a list of options and there will be a search bar at the top of the page.

Search Pixton in the search bar, and install the add-on. Once you're done, it should have a check mark and say installed.

Now that the add-on is installed, click Add-ons in the toolbar again, hover over Pixton Comics and then click Open.

Once opened, there will be a Welcome window on the right side of the page, click Get Started.

Now you can design an avatar to add in to your Google Slide. Start by choosing the character type that you'd like to start with.

Select the combination of hair colors and skin tones that you like.

Scroll down to choose from a selection of hairstyles.

Pick an outfit.

And finally, choose a pose!

Choosing a pose will insert your character into your Google Slide, and you can move it wherever you'd like by clicking and dragging.

Access the characters you've created recently by clicking into the Recent tab.

To insert recent characters into your Google Slide, you'll just need to click on one, and choose the pose you'd like again.

You can also add your comics into Google Slides by either generating a link to share your comic, then opening that and copying and pasting the panels individually into the slide.

To do so, generate a share link for your comic if you haven't already by clicking the two rectangles when viewing your comic in share mode.

Open that link in a new tab, then your comic will open on the full page.

Right click to copy your image, then head over to Google Slides.

Right click again, in your Google Slide and then click Paste.

Now you've pasted an individual slide, you can follow these steps to paste the rest of the slides too!

Or you can download the comic by clicking Download.

Then, in Google Slides, click Insert in the toolbar at the top, and toggle over Image, then click Upload from Computer.

After selecting the file and clicking Open, your full comic will be entered into the Google Slide.

For the finishing touches, you can resize your comic or click and drag to move it where you want!
