This is Chapter 11 of Getting Started with 3.x, produced by the OOoAuthors group. A PDF of this chapter is available from this wiki page. The PDFs are up to date for the second edition of the book, but not all of the wiki pages for this chapter have been updated yet.


You can add graphic and image files, including photos, drawings, scanned images, and others, to documents. OOo can import various vector (line drawing) and raster (bitmap) file formats. The most common are GIF, JPEG or JPG, PNG, and BMP. See Appendix B for a full list of the graphic formats OOo can import.

Graphics in OOo are of three basic types:

  • Image files, such as photos, drawings, and scanned images
  • Diagrams created using OOo’s drawing tools
  • Charts created using OOo’s Chart facility

This chapter covers images and diagrams.

More detailed descriptions on working with drawing tools can be found in the Draw Guide and Impress Guide. Instructions on how to create charts are given in the Calc Guide.
