3. Access Your Sheet Through the Provided Public Link

After publishing, Google Sheets will provide you with a link. Open this link in a new browser tab. This will display your Google Sheets document on a publicly accessible web page.

4. Locate Your Desired Image on the Published Page

On the published web page, locate the image you wish to download. The layout might look slightly different from the Google Sheets interface, but you should be able to find your image.

5. Initiate the Image Download Process

Right-click on the image (or use a two-finger tap on a trackpad) to bring up the context menu. In the context menu, select the option "Save Image As..." or a similar command. This action prompts you to save the image file to your computer.

6. Make Your Document Private Again by Unpublishing

If you published your document only to download the image and do not need it to stay public, go back to Google Sheets. Under the File menu, choose 'Publish to the web' and then click on 'Stop publishing' to make your document private again.
