It’s rare that you will have a picture that you want to use in a presentation that doesn’t require any kind of editing. You can perform a lot of advanced image editing in programs like Photoshop, but you can also do a lot of common edits in applications like Google Slides.
But you may eventually perform so many edits on a picture that it no longer meets the needs of your presentation, and you might prefer to simply reset the picture and start over. Luckily Google Slides has an option that lets you do this quickly, thereby saving you the hassle of individually undoing every edit that you have made to the image since you added it to the slide.
