       Here is another example of how helpful Gizmo's is;
           Gimp is recommended yet is stated as being excessive for many
basic users.

 I highly recommend gimp. I use it often as it does a great job with stuff
like that.

        That is *not* a 'freeware' site;
           anyone who has gone there would know this.

       If you enjoy LO, then you should also enjoy their dedicated efforts.

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

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 (and
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 several
times by an actual moderator of this mailing list.

There are a few websites listing free and open source software:

And many more.
