Method 1: Save an image to Google Keep
It’s the easiest way to save image from Google Slides, but it’s suitable for a few images.
Step 1: In your Slides, right-click or control click an image that you want to save, and click on “Save to Keep”.
Step 2: That will save the image to Google Keep and open it in the sidebar, then click or control-click on the image in the sidebar and select the “Save image as” option. And boom, so easy!
Method 2: Save the image with Gmail
You will use this way with Gmail.
Step 1: In your Slides, locate your desired image, and right-click or control click on the image, and then choose “Copy” menu item.
Step 2: Go to Gmail, compose a new email and open the Gmail editor, and paste the image.
Step 3: The image will show in editor, then right-click or control click on the image, please don’t select the image, and select “Save image as”. That’s it.
Method 3: Download as a ODP file
There are many options in the download menu. You can download your slides as a Microsoft PowerPoint, PDF document, or JPEG image. But you have to edit the picture again, so I recommend you download your slides as an ODP file. It’s the best way to save images in batches.
Step 1: In Slides, On the top left corner, click on File > Download > ODP Document(.odp).
Step 2: Locate the Zip file, extract it on your desktop, then navigate into the pictures folder. You can find all of the images that you used in your Google Docs document.
Method 4: Take Screenshots
Keep in mind that you can’t get the original image with this method. And you can take a screenshot with your in-built computer shortcuts or a Chrome extension called Nimbus Capture.
Step 1: In your slides, click the “present” button to enlarge the image.
Step 2: Press “Command + Shift + 4” to screenshot your desired image on Mac. If you are on Windows, try the print screen option (Ctrl + PrtScr) or “Windows + Shift + S.” After that, you will automatically download the images.
Method 5: Developer Tools
This method seems to be a little complicated, but you will find it’s accessible only you get started step by step.
Step 1: In your Slides, you can right-click somewhere in the white space above the presentation and click “inspect.” Or you can open DevTools from Chrome’s main menu, click on Customize and control Google Chrome > More Tools > Developer Tools.
Step 2: Developer Tools should open up, click on the “Elements” menu at the top of the panel, now click on the left-most icon that looks like a rectangle with a cursor pointing to it.
Step 3: Now point to your desired image and click on it, and the image link address will show in the “Elements” sidebar, it’s like “href=” something, that’s the image URL.
Step 4: Copy and paste the URL into a new tab, and right-click or control click on the image, and then select “Save image as” menu item. Done!
