Hi :)
How about as an add-on/Extension for Draw?
Sounds clunky.

Do we really need more bloat in Writer to make it into yet another
image editor?
Most of the functionality already exists in Writer, and we are not talking about image editing in the literal sense, only about resizing and cropping. It need not contribute significantly to bloat if well written. Have you ever looked at IrfanView (a very capable and well regarded Windows image manipulation program) that is only 2.0 MB (installed size) with capabilities that go way beyond anything we are talking about.

I'm happier using dedicated programs and thus making
the images available for use elsewhere and in other programs.
Of all the images that I have processed for use in Writer, I have never used the same processed image elsewhere. Your usage may be different.

Just because Word does something bad doesn't mean we have to follow.
FUD? Who said anything about *that* functionality being bad?

of the extra advantage of LibreOffice is that it works on low spec
systems that MS Office can't cope with.

Tom :)

I don't know how often this feature is requested for odt files. I know
that for pdf you can set parameters for the image compression, and it make
sense since the resulting file is unlikely to undergo future changes, but
it's less obvious for file formats that are not at the "end" of the editing
line. It's probably better to work with the "highest" resolution needed, and
produce smaller files as needed.
Fair point. However most documents reach a finished state, at which point
they do not need to stay bloated.
