4. Using Google Image Search: You can find images for your graphic novel using Google image search. It's recommended to use images that are licensed for reuse.

5. Inserting and Cropping Images: You can replace, insert, and crop images in Google Slides. You can also add a border or stroke to your images and change the layer order.

6. Using the Provided Template: The video provides a link to a graphic novel template that you can use in Google Slides. The template includes pre-made slide layouts and add-ons that you can use in your graphic novel.

7. Exporting the Document: You can export the whole document as a PDF or individual pages as JPEG or PNG images.

Remember to respect copyright laws when using images and fonts in your graphic novel.
