So You won’t find any other download option when you right-click on the image into the Google Docs. But there are few workarounds to do it, So let’s check it out.
How to Download Images from Google Docs
If You are on the phone or desktop, you can take a screenshot and then crop the image. But the quality of the image slightly down. So if you are finding to download images without compromising on Down quality, here are some steps to do it.

It will open in a small Google Keep interface, and your Image will show up here. Now You can Right-Click the image in the right panel to Download it.
2. By Publishing the Doc to the Internet
2nd way to download an image from Google docs is by publishing it to the internet. Open the Google Doc that has the Image, click on the File in the menu bar at the top > publish to the internet.
Now click the Publish button in the pop-up. I would suggest you NOT to use this method if your document has confidential or compassionate information. So Remember to stop publishing it once you have downloaded your selected images.
Open the generated link and then Download the image by Right-Clicking and saving it to your PC.
After you are done, you can now stop publishing so that people don’t get unauthorized access to the Google Doc. Go to File > Publish to Web > Published content and then Settings and then click on to Stop Publishing.
3. Save it as an HTML

A zip archive will download automatically on your PC. Extract the File, and Now you will find a folder titled images.
The folder of the images contains all the images from the Google doc and is downloaded automatically into this folder.
