Google Drive is an excellent platform for storing various types of content, including images in different formats. This service allows you to upload PNG, JPEG, GIF, BMP, and more image formats to cloud storage. In the future, you will have access to them from any device with an Internet connection.

Images are versatile content types useful in various fields. They can serve purposes like concert tickets, discount coupons, infographics, family photos, etc. Learn how to create an image on Google Drive and how to make a QR code for an image of any format.

Features of images on Google Drive

There are two ways to create images on Google Drive. First, users can use the built-in Google Drawings tool to create drawings, diagrams, illustrations, and graphic content from scratch. Just launch the app and start working with a blank canvas: add shapes, text blocks, lines, and more.

This tool is useful for working with presentations, documents, infographics, etc. Using Google Drawings, users can create and edit images directly in the browser, as well as share them with other people. Once you complete your image, the file will be automatically saved in the selected folder.

The second method to create images on Google Drive is to upload pictures to cloud storage from another device for further storage and organization. Subsequently, you will have the option to:

– view the image or open it using another application;

– zoom in or out for easy viewing of all parts of the picture;

– download, print, move, rename, and delete files;

– write a comment on the image, and mark it with a star to add to favorites;

– provide other users with access to the picture, including the option to download, leave a comment, etc.;

– view general information about the image, add a short description, and view current access parameters.

However, if you need to edit your images, you'll need to use a third-party program or the previously mentioned Google Drawings app. To do this, click the '+ Create' button, select the 'Google Drawings' option, and upload the picture that you want to edit, following the sequence of commands 'Insert' -> 'Image' -> 'Disk'.
