Hi David,

I have a PNG image.  I need to edit the image to blur out some
portions that I don't want other people to see, and then save that
modified PNG image.

Is this something that LibreOffice can do?

LibreOffice has only some rudimentary things you can do, for example crop
an image, or combine an image with text. It has some filters, but they work
all on the whole image. LibreOffice is not designed for editing raster
graphics, Draw is a tool for editing vector graphics. So no, LibreOffice is
the wrong tool. You can try The Gimp instead.

Kind regards

The good thing about GIMP, if you cannot find the needed
function/filter/plug-in built in the install, there is a large plug-in
"database" site.

​David, here the URL of the​

​GIMP webpage which explains how to use the blur​/sharpen tool :

Good luck !


Henri - - - Did you decide to send a reply both to myself and the list? That is what you did.

One of these days I will read the GIMP docs. I have been using it as a primary image tool [not vector] for 5 or more years of Ubuntu or Mint Linux, with Paint Shop Pro as my default for Windows on my systems. I also add GIMP to my Window system.

As for Charles post - - - YES, you have to be careful about where you look for and download the freeware and open source software. You never know what may be added to the downloads. I always go to the "official" site to download most of these packages I want. To be honest, I have a web page list, which I have not kept up-to-day, where I store links to the more common sites I tend to go to. That way I do not have to remember the "exact" titles of the software I want to download and not need to Google then to find where to download them. Actually, That whole domain web pages needs to be worked on. So, here it the link to my list. When I have time I will update it.
