You can Save and choose (for example) JPG from the drop-down menu. But it will be the whole page.

To add to others' answers, you can choose File menu > Export and then choose JPEG, PNG, or other formats. That would do the trick for you, I think.

File menu > Export chooses the whole file. I don't see a way for choosing just the graphic. Dumb me!

Select the graphic. Choose JPEG and you'll see an option to export "Selection."

If there is an image in your InDesign file, it has been imported from somewhere in your computer, so why don't you locate it and copy it on your desktop?
