Surprisingly, Google Docs don`t let you simply save an image from the document. Mostly, we suppose because of the context menu, which is made through Google services, unlike regular Mac and Windows have. We will need to take workarounds. And we have three ways to get the image saved to the PC. So, let’s get to them.
The first workaround is performed via Google Keep notes, a standard service we have along with Google Docs and other Google services. So, this is how we use it:
We select the image, right mouse click on it. And in the context menu, we locate and press “Save to Keep”
That will open this menu on the right, and you may need to wait until it’s uploaded in there
Once it’s here, right mouse click on it. And here you have your regular context menu where you, as usual, can open the image in a new tab in the browser, save it to your computer, and copy it for further use, for example. There we go
We are moving on to the second option.
Downloading as a Web Page
The following method is just great for a bulk download allowing you to save an archive with all the images in the doc to your computer.
On the document, we go to “File” on the toolbar on top of the page, down to the “Download” item, and on the new menu on the right, we select “Web Page”
The browser tells us that it has downloaded a file, so we open it in Explorer. Here it is
Right mouse click on it and unzip it
Now here’s an HTML web page file and the folder with images
NB! So, you need some kind of tool installed on your computer to work with archives.
Downloading from Web Published Doc
The third way is a bit unregular, but it’s working since all this is a workaround.
On the document, we go to “File” on the toolbar on top of the page, locate the “Publish to the web” item and press it
And in the new window, we simply press on the “Publish” button, then confirm it on top (press OK)
And here we have a link that we copy
We are creating a new tab in the browser and pasting that link to the address bar
And here is a kind of HTML version of a document from which you have access to a standard context menu when you press on the image with the right mouse. And you can open the image in a new tab in the browser, save it to a computer, copy it, for instance
And that was the final option of how to download an image from Google Docs.
We hope this tutorial will help you learn how to download an image from Google Docs. Good luck!
