Many creatives use Google Slides to present their pitch decks to potential or prospective clients. A storyboard (or part of a storyboard) is often included in these pitch decks. With this in mind, we’ve tried to make the transition from Boords to Google Slides as smooth as it can be!
This article will explain the steps to follow to move your storyboard’s frames from Boords directly to Google Slides.
If you're tight on time, check out the short video below to see it in action 👇
To get started, click Download, then Google Slides.
Before downloading your slides, you’ll be able to customize how your storyboard will look.
Step 1: Choose a layout
First, choose a layout for your slides. We think the eight-frame grid looks superb in Google Slides 👌
Step 2: Customise the font
You can then choose a font.
Edit the text size.
And choose the text colour.
Step 3: Add a background colour
You can also opt to add a colour to the background of your storyboard.
Step 4: Customise frame display
Customise the frame display by checking or unchecking these boxes.
Here, you can choose if you’d like to show borders around your images and decide if you want the "Label" text, the frame numbers and the note icons shown.
Step 5: Customise the footer
Next, set the footer settings. To remove all information from the footer of your slides, uncheck all of these boxes.
Step 6: Upload or remove logo
By default, the “Made with Boords” logo will be added to the footer, but you can easily remove it by selecting Remove existing.
Alternatively, you can add your own logo to the footer of each page. Select Upload new to upload a file from your device.
☝️ Note: The option to upload your own logo isn’t included on the Freelance plan, but it’s available on all team plans (Studio, Company & Company Plus).
Step 7: Export PNGs
When your preferences are set, click Export PNGs to download each page of your storyboard as separate PNG files. The files will be downloaded into one tidy zip file!
Step 8: Upload PNGs to Google Slides
Open the zip file, then upload your images directly to Google Slides!
In Google Slides, select Insert > Image > Upload from computer.
