Apple makes the iWork suite available to users for free on their devices, consisting of applications aimed at offices: Pages, Numbers and Keynote. So if you use these applications a lot on your Mac to create spreadsheets, documents, and presentations, chances are you’ve found images that you want to export back to your computer.
This is a great way to share with others images from a presentation that you created a long time ago, or have received a document from someone else and need to edit an image contained in it. The method works in any iWork application on Mac and the images maintain the resolution and quality of the originals.
Below, see how to extract images from documents from Pages, Numbers or Keynote.
