When making a Google Site, you need to gain the attention of the viewers so they can look into your website. One way to add an attention getter to your website is to add pictures. Using the new Google Sites, you can add transitioning photos. In this blog, I will show you the steps on how to add transitioning photos to your website.
Make a Google Slide to put your pictures. To make a slide; go to drive, click on New, and click slides. From there, click Make a New Slide. If you do not know how to use Google Slides, check out Tyler Howell’s blog Slides:
From here, create a blank slide; top left corner, +icon, add blank slide.
Insert the images you want for your site. Make sure that only 1 picture is on an individual slide.
Make your Google Site; Drive, New, Google Site. The new Google Sites is accessed through Drive but the old one is through http://sites.google.com . The new Google sites should be updated as the main Google sites in the near future. If you need any more assistance with Sites, go to https://support.google.com/sites/answer/153197?hl=en
Once you are on your site, you will then add the slides you made. Watch this video to see the steps:
