From the Gallery

The Gallery provides a convenient way to group reusable objects such as graphics and sounds that can be inserted into documents. The Gallery is explained in more depth in the chapter titled “Working with the Gallery†in the Getting Started guide.

This sectionexplains the basics of inserting a picture into Calc from the Gallery.

  1. To open the Gallery, choose Tools > Gallery, or click on the Gallery icon . (See Figure 91.)


  1. Navigate through the Gallery to find the desired picture.

  2. To insert the picture, either right-click and choose Insert > Copy or click and drag the picture into the spreadsheet


    You can also insert a picture using Insert > Link. The difference between a copy and a link is that a copy saves the image into the file so that any changes to the original file don’t affect the document. A link is the opposite. A link is essentially a pointer to the original image. That means if you change the image file, the image in the document will change as well.

  3. To close the Gallery, choose Tools > Gallery and uncheck the Gallery entry, or click on the Gallery icon again.
