To insert a picture into your presentation
If you have already saved the picture, and you would like to insert, go to Insert->Picture->From File and navigate to your picture file. Select your file, and click "Insert". Your picture will appear on the current slide. Images can also be pasted into your Impress presentation. If you have an image within another source, copy the image in the original source. Go to Edit->Paste and paste the art work into your presentation. To change the shape of a picture : Move your cursor over the picture and click once to select it. You will see a number of small green squares appear along the edge of the picture. These squares are called "sizing handles." Click on one of the sizing handles that appears on a side of the picture; hold the mouse button down; drag the handle to change the shape of the picture. Your pointer will be a double-sided arrow when you are directly over a sizing handle. Be aware that you are distorting the picture by stretching or squishing it. Release the mouse button when you have achieved the desired shape. To change the size of a picture : Move your cursor over the picture and click once. You will see the sizing handles described above. Click your cursor on one of the sizing handles that appears on the corner of the picture; hold the mouse button down; drag the picture to make it smaller or larger. Using these corner handles maintains the original proportions of the image (it does not stretch or squish). Release the mouse button when you have achieved the desired size. To move a picture : Option #1 : Using the mouse: Move your cursor over the picture until the cursor looks like a cross. Click the mouse button, hold the button down, and drag the picture to change its location. Release the mouse button when you are satisfied with the location of the image. Option #2 : Using the direction arrow keys:
Move your cursor over the picture. Click the mouse button once. Use the direction keys to move the picture vertically, horizontally, right, and left. This option works well when you need to adjust the position very precisely, or just a tiny bit.
