The only thing that works for me is NOT to upload the image to Google docs, but to use the menu INSERT > IMAGE and then specify the location of the image, either on my computer or on the internet.

The (other :-) only thing that works for me is when the image is converted to Googledocs own format. Then the Web-clipboard can be used. That goes like this:
1. Open image
2. Copy to web-clipboard (icon to the right of the undo/redo icons)
3. Open presentation
4. Paste from web-clipboard (look for the same icon - a clipboard with a cloud in front of it)
4.1 Note: the web-clipboard icon opens into a drop-down menu with many items. Some of them have only standard names, so do not seem to be relevant. However, floating the mouse over them shows (be patient, please...) a small-size picture which image you wll be pasting.

This would be a nice feature to have, I had to download all my images for my slides, just to upload them again to insert them into my presentation.
