Sorry Anne, but I'm going to have to disagree. It is not because I want
to be unpleasant or anything, but as a moderator of this list you should
perhaps know better than sending users to this kind of site.
Anyone going to the site you mention will be presented with a list of
software (mostly for Windows, others available as SaaS). As far as I can
tell *none of them* are Free and Open Source Software. Clicking on each
link will point to software that is actual freeware or donationware:
- none of them has a Free/Open Source Software licence
- none of them has an open development model
Surely you do make the difference between a software like LibreOffice
and software listed on the site? Again, I do not point this out to sound
unpleasant or unfriendly, but it is not wise to advertise this kind of
software on a users mailing list of a Free and Open Source Software.
I hope you'll understand what the issue is.

To: "email@example.com" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I have a PNG image. I need to edit the image to blur out some
that I don't want other people to see, and then save that modified PNG
Is this something that LibreOffice can do? I tried running Draw and
opening the PNG. I believe the "Smooth" operation is what I need. I
see this in the "Filter" dropdown when I click on the image, but I'm
sure what to do with that.
I'm guessing if I can figure out how to properly modify the image, I
use the "Save Image ..." menu item in the context menu to save the
PNG. Is this correct?
Sorry to nitpick here but I am not sure we want to recommend freeware
not free and open source software) to our users. Many Freeware download
sites are famous to bundle spyware in the software they distribute.
I am a bit surprized to see this "techsupportalert" being mentioned
times by an actual moderator of this mailing list.
There are a few websites listing free and open source software:
And many more.
