How to Save Images from Google Docs

You can save images from Google Docs in many ways even though Google Docs doesn't have an inbuilt option for this task.

In this post, we will see two simple ways to do this task​. Let's see what they are.

  • angle-right
    Go to Google Docs.
  • angle-right
    ​Open the document which contains an image that you want to save.
  • angle-right
    Find, select and right-click the image you want to save.
  • angle-right
    Now, you can see "Save to Keep notepad" option. Click on it.
Save to Keep notepad option
  • angle-right
    ​Now, the image is saved as a note to the Google Keep, and you can see the "Notes from Keep" sidebar on the right side of the screen with the image you want to save.
  • angle-right
    Right-click on the image in the "Notes from Keep" sidebar. Click "Save Image As" option and save the image.
Save Image As option

Note: As said earlier, the image is saved as a note to the Google Keep and if you want to delete that, follow these steps:

  • angle-double-right
    ​Hover the mouse over the image in the "Notes from Keep" sidebar.
  • angle-double-right
    Now, you can see an Overflow Menu (three vertical dots). Click on it.
  • angle-double-right
    Click the "Delete" option, and it will be moved to the "Trash" section of Google Keep.
Delete option

​Also, note that you cannot use this method on Google Docs for Android.

You can go with the above method if you want to save a few (OR selective) images from the document.

However, if you want to save a lot of (OR all) images from the document, then the above method is a time-consuming task.

How about saving all the images in the document at once? Sounds good? Then follow the below steps:

  • angle-right
    ​Open the document which contains the pictures you want to save.
  • angle-right
    Click on File. Hover your mouse over "Download as" option.
  • angle-right
    Click on "Web Page (.html, zipped)."
Web Page option
  • angle-right
    ​Now, save the file, and you can see a zip file with the document name in the "Downloads" folder of your browser (Typically, it is "Downloads" folder in your PC). Extract the zip file and then open the extracted folder.
  • angle-right
    There, you can see a folder named "images." Open it, and you can see all the images in the document.
Images folder

That's it. All done.

Here's how you can do this method on Google Docs for Android:

  • angle-double-right
    ​Open the document you prefer in the app.
  • angle-double-right
    Tap Overflow Menu (three vertical dots) at the top > Share & export.
  • angle-double-right
    Tap "Save As" option. In the popup, choose "Web Page (.html, zipped)" option and then tap "OK."
Selected Web Page option
  • angle-double-right
    ​Now, tap the "Download" icon at the top to save the zip file to your Android device.
Download icon at the top
  • angle-double-right
    ​Once the file gets downloaded, go to the "Download" folder in your Android device, and you can see the zip file with the document name there.
  • angle-double-right
    Extract that zip file. Open the extracted folder, and you can see "images" folder. Open the "images" folder, and you can see all the images in the document.

​I hope that this post is useful to you. If it is, share this post with your friends.
