Google Docs offers multiple options to export the Docs file. You can export Google Docs documents to DOCX, RTF, PDF, HTML, epub, and more. One popular format missing from the list is JPEG or PNG to convert a Google Docs document into an image. Don’t worry. Using the methods below, you can easily convert Google Docs documents to JPEG.

When you want to share Google Docs documents in view-only format, the JPEG can be ideal. You can always share it as a PDF, but it would require a PDF editor, on the other hand, to open the file. JPEG support comes built-in on most modern devices out there. You don’t have to worry about the receiver getting an unsupported file.

Now that you know how useful it can be to convert a Google Docs file to JPEG format, let’s go through our options to make changes.
