Description Frank Schönheit 2005-06-01 13:22:12 UTC
Today's ways to extract a picture from a document are rather laborious:
- Copy/Paste to another application potentially modifes the image, since the
  target application will most probably re-encode it
- unzip <document_name> is not really an option for the average user
- Export->HTML is not really intuitive, and produces too much unwanted files

Thus, a "Save Picture to..." functionality in the context menu of a picture
(embedded in a text document), which exports/copies this picture to the file
system, would be pretty useful.

The following snippet can surely be modified to only work for a single
image/object, without linking the image...

Comment 6 lohmaier 2006-04-03 19:16:54 UTC
assigning to fl because in
he mentioned the problem of missing consistency between Writer and Draw/Impress

And why not have this in Calc as well?
Comment 7 frank.loehmann 2006-04-04 09:06:12 UTC
FL: Set target to OOo 3.0, because OOo 2.0.3 just implements the patch provided
with #13816#.

Furthermore we have to think about an improvement of the Bitmap Export dialog,
currently used in Draw/Impress, because the resolution setting is no real
resolution and just changes the logical size of the bitmap during export to get
the desired resolution. Additionally the dialog has e a restriction to a maximum
2048 *2048 pixel. Not to forget to add a possibility to delete hidden areas of
only logically cropped images, to allow resampling of images to a maximum
resolution and to change the format of a bitmap to JPG for a reduction in size.

Comment 11 lohmaier 2006-05-27 00:56:02 UTC
Issue 65264 mentions that the possiblility to save an image to a file is already
present when the document is read-only.

So it doesn't seem to be that hard to make the functionality available when the
file is in read/write mode.
Comment 12 frank.loehmann 2006-05-29 13:10:07 UTC
FL: Thank you for the pointer. Seems that this is a relict from a time when OOo
was planned to be a browser. I have CCed mmp, because there is something similar
(#13816) coming up with a patch for OOo 2.0.4 in Impress and maybe #65264#
allows us to implement this also in Writer.
Comment 13 frank.loehmann 2006-07-13 16:56:34 UTC
set target to OOo 2.x
Comment 14 stefangachter 2007-08-22 09:03:54 UTC
Is this issue is still pending? It would be great to have this feature also for
non read-only docs. I always missed it in Microsoft Word and I was happy to
discover it in OpenOffice, but so far, only for read-only docs.
Thanks for your efforts, Stefan
Comment 15 frank.loehmann 2007-09-07 10:41:35 UTC

Please support this feature
Comment 18 frank.loehmann 2008-02-11 14:18:59 UTC
Set target to 3.x.
Comment 19 pmike 2010-01-13 15:47:16 UTC
+1 for Calc
Comment 20 denis0 2010-01-14 06:39:55 UTC
OOo 3.2

Writer: "save as" picture works fine.

Calc: not presents this option at all. Very sad for me...

I can 
1) copy (drag`n`drop) image from Calc`s Navigator into Writer or 
2) copy image into Gallery
and then export it, but it`s not trivial way...
