How to add a graphic from a file
OpenOffice.org can import various vector (line drawing) and raster (bitmap) file formats. The most common are GIF, JPEG or JPG, PNG, and BMP. See â€œGraphic file types supportedâ€ on page 221 for a full list of supported graphic file types.
Graphics may be downloaded from the Internet, scanned, created with a graphics program, or they may be photos taken with a digital camera. Some questions come to mind:
How is a graphic inserted?
Should the graphic be included in the document, or should it be linked to the file?
How can the size of the graphic be adjusted?
How can the relative position between the graphic and the text be changed?
These questions will be discussed in order.
