Google Docs is great for collaboration, but grabbing images uploaded to the document is more difficult than it should be. Fortunately, there is an easy way to download the original photos to your Windows 10, Mac or Linux computer.
While you can̵
To do this, open the Google Docs document with the images you want to download. From the top menu bar, click File> Download> Web Page (.html, zipped).
After a few seconds, Google Docs exports your document as a zip file, which you then need to extract using File Explorer (on Windows) or the Archive Utility (on Mac).
The extracted content shows your document saved as an HTML file, with all included images saved separately in the “Pictures” folder. Images downloaded from a Google Docs document are exported as JPG files with consecutive file names (Image1.jpg, Image2.jpg, etc.) in any order.
Once downloaded, you can edit the images and reinsert them into your document. Or you can use them elsewhere.
