I'm trying to copy images from a Google Presentation to a LibreOffice Impress file, but having no luck. Any suggestions?
Did you try grabbing the URL via the Network panel in developer tools? I was able to get the URLs for images I needed by:
- Opening Developer Tools in Chrome (Cmd+Opt+I)
- Selecting the "Network" tab (you may need to refresh the presentation)
- Clicking the little "filter" icon (the third icon from the top left)
- Clicking "Images" to show only images
- Clicking "Preview" to make sure you have the correct image
- Right-click the URL from the preview panel content area and choose to "Open in New Tab"
- In the new tab, right-click the image and save it
A much more simple approach is to use the now built-in feature: Google Keep Notepad.
Right click image -> 💡 Save to Keep Notepad
You can then download from the keep notepad the way you can download any image displayed in your browser.
This not only let's you copy the entire slide, but actual, individual images (at their original resolution).
It seems like Google drive somehow "encrypt" the image source if you want to copy and paste it into Libre Office Impress. If you do a "Paste Special", the source of the image states "Unknown".
Also, the same goes for Microsoft Office:
In conclusion, I do not think it's possible to copy and paste images from Google Drive to Office applications on your workstation. I would however say it is possible to do so between Google Drive applications. The workaround would be either
1. to download the image and insert it as a picture from your computer or
2. Copy the URL of the picture on the Internet (Not Google Drive) and also go to insert > picture > and paste the URL in the location field of the picture.
