Mostly we haven’t kept source files for images other than in the chapters
where they’re used, except for some that are labelled - and those not
consistently. We should do more, especially if the originals are ODG, SVG,
etc. Yes, they should go in an Images folder for the book version. Same
name, different extension, where relevant.

The Contributors Guide needs a lot of updating. Images - creation,
insertion, anchoring, storage, etc - are among the many topics that are out
of date. (Updates are being done on the wiki first; feel free - indeed,
encouraged - to contribute.

Hello all,

I'm looking at the contributor guide and past versions of the user guides
now. I have some questions about images.

1. Are there source files (ODG, SVG, etc.) stored in Nextcloud or
otherwise? I don't see anything for Writer or Getting Started, current or
previous version.

2. Regardless of where past files are stored, where should current files be
stored? I see an images folder for WG6.4, containing only PNGs. Is it okay
to place them side by side, same name, different extension?

3. When exporting the image to be embedded, what format and settings should
be used? My instinct is to use PNG and 300 DPI. The LO Draw export dialog
for PNG also has options "Mode/Interlaced" and "Drawing Options/Save
