In this tutorial we will learn how to: Insert Pictures and Objects into a presentation Format the Pictures and Objects Hyperlink within and outside the presentation and Insert Tables Here we are using Ubuntu Linux 10.04 and LibreOffice Suite version 3.3.4. In a web-browser address bar, type the URL shown on the screen. This will display an image. Now right-click on the image and choose the Save Image As option. A dialog box will open. In the Name field, ‘open source -bart.png’ is already displayed. I will choose the location as Desktop and click on the Save button. Lets open our presentation ‘Sample-Impress’ which we had saved earlier. We will now see how to add a picture into this presentation. Click on Insert from the Main menu and then click on Picture. Now click on From File option. A dialog box will open. Choose the folder from which you want to insert a picture. I will choose the Desktop folder. Now choose the picture we want to insert and click on the Open button. The picture gets inserted into the slide. Lets undo the changes Let me demonstrate another way to insert pictures. Insert a new slide after the slide titled ‘Overview’ by clicking on Insert and Slide. Click on the Title text box and change the title to ‘Opensource Funny’. Notice a small box with 4 icons in the centre. This is the Insert toolbar. From the Insert toolbar,click on the Insert Picture icon. Choose a picture and click on the Open button. Notice that the inserted picture covers almost the whole slide. You can change the shape and size of the image by first clicking on it and manipulating the control points. In a similar manner we can also insert other objects like charts and movie-clips into our presentation. Explore all these possibilities. Now lets learn how to hyperlink. Hyper linking allows you to easily move from slide to slide or open a web page or a document from the presentation. First we will look at how to hyperlink with in a presentation. Insert a new slide after the slide titled Overview. Click on the title and type ‘Table of Contents’. Click on the Body text box and type the titles of the succeeding slides as follows: Open Source Funny

Now when you hover your cursor over the text, the cursor turns into a pointing finger. This means that the hyperlinking was successful!
