Hi :)
I usually find png is a better format for editing but jpg is lighter-weight  which is only really a 
factor if you are emailing them or putting them up on a web-site.  For  a slide-show it's probably 
better to keep them as pngs anyway.  

I don't know about Macs but in Gnu&Linux (such as Ubuntu) then addign one type of functionality in 
1 programs adds it to all other relevant programs too.  So if you have Gimp or some other 
photo-viewer on your machine and can get that to handle jpgs then LO will be able to handle jps 
too.  However, i think it's best to stick with pngs.  

Regards from
Tom :)

Hi Tom

I only have 3.5.3 available on both and I'm saving as .odp. I've got round it by converting all the 
pic to .png format. It seems that the 10.4 setup can't take jpegs although the 10.7 version can. I 
do remember having to download something a while age to allow jpegs to be used somewhere but can't 
remember what software it was used for. Was it for LibreOffice? If so there was nothing about it on 
the website that I could find.

Hi :)
Can you try LibreOffice 3.4.6 on both reasonably easily?

Also which formats are you using?  The odp format is best especially if you have LibreOffice on 
both machines.  Are you suing ppt, ie the MS Office Powerpoint format?

I am trying to put together a picture presentation using Impress. Using a mac mini running Lion I 
am having no problem. As the presentation will be given elsewhere I want to use a G4 laptop 
running osx 10.4.11. Transfering the file fails to work as it fails to include all of the 
pictures. Any attempt to rebuild on the G4 fails as it says "Graphics filter not found" on most 
of the pictures, all jpeg. I can use some other pictures, as a test, but there seems to be no 
I am using LibreOffice on the G4 and LibreOffice 3.5.0rc3 on the mac mini.

If anyone can help I will be grateful, the presentation is for Monday evening.
