In Impress how can I export images at their original resolution ?

I want to export as images at the highest possible quality and with the original dimensions of each image - not downsized or upsized or processed in any way.

I’ve created an impress document and pasted a picture into it. The image resolution was 4608 x 3456

The export dialog permits the user to define the width and height or to leave blank 'for defaults'.

Leaving 'defaults' blank and exporting as images at 100% quality and as .jpg, the exported image comes out at 1058 x 794. How were those dimensions arrived at ? They aren’t a simple ratio of the original.

So what does ‘defaults’ mean ?

Defining 100% quality and width of 6000 in the dialog, the export goes ahead with no warning that the image will be upsized.

Ideally one would hope for the option to export the images in their original form with no modification, I thought that's what 'defaults' would mean.

Any advice ?

Open the impress document as ZIP archive, and find the images in a Pictures subdirectory.

Also, right-clicking the image and choosing "Save..." should do that correctly.

The answer has been provided by Mike Kaganski in a comment - thanks very much Mike:

This works but it would be nice to hear from the author(s) of the 'Export as images' extension as to the intention / function of the dialog, the 'defaults' settings and why there doesn't seem to be the option to export the images at their original resolution.
