How to Upload Images to Google Docs


Words can be powerful but sometimes woefully inadequate. Sure, you can try to spell out the appearance of an idyllic mountain scene at sunset, but only the best of writers can even start to describe that. Whether you're trying to get across emotion or just information, pictures sometimes work better than words. Google Docs lets you insert images into text documents, but since the word-processing service is Internet-based, you'll need to upload the pictures from your computer first.

  • Sign into Google Docs (

  • Click the "Upload" button, located to the right of the "Create New" button on the left side of the screen.

  • Click the blue "Select Files to Upload" link underneath the box that says "Drag and drop files here."

  • Locate the image you'd like to upload from your computer in the new window that opens. You can upload the file in two ways; either click on the file, then click "Open," or drag the file into the box that says "Drag and drop files here."

  • Click "Start Upload" at the bottom of the screen. Allow the file to finish uploading.

Tips & Warnings

  • The uploaded images will be viewable in the "Images and Videos" tab of your Google Docs dashboard.
  • Google Docs only supports .jpg, .gif, .png and .pdf images.
