Description Brennan Vincent 2012-08-14 00:27:20 UTC
In normal images, one can set various options to recolor the image like color type (default, grayscale, black/white, watermark), red, green, blue, contrast, brightness, and gamma. These options should also be available for bitmaps used as areas/fills for shapes, but I cannot find any way to set them.

Furthermore, manually adding draw:color-mode , draw:red , etc. properties to the style:graphics-properties element has no effect, whereas this works for normal images.

What type of images are you able to change colors for? I couldn't change for jpg?

Draw has only rudimentary tools for bitmap manipulation. Please use a bitmap manipulating application (e.g. The Gimp) to alter your image. Then import it to fill the shape.
The file format does not allow to save such bitmap filters for filling bitmaps. And I doubt, that there will be work in this direction. LibreOffice is still an office suite and no image editing program.

Based on this, do you agree to change it to enhancement?

Regina and Hashem,

The issue isn't wanting to use LibreOffice as a replacement for the GIMP. The issue is being able to import files from Microsoft Publisher. Our import filter decodes raster images from .pub files as shape fills rather than directly as bitmaps (for a variety of reasons that I won't bother explaining here) and so this would be necessary for the importer to work correctly.

The functionality is already there in Draw. I'm not asking for new features. I'm asking for the features that already exist to work consistently, so it seems to me that this is indeed a bug, and not an enhancement request. We can already apply these transforms to normal images, just not to shape image fills, contrary to common sense and to my interpretation of the ODF standard, which specifies that draw:color-mode , draw:red , and so on always be available on the style:graphics-properties element.

In light of this I've removed the NEEDINFO status and changed the importance to reflect that this is a bug, not an enhancement request. I'm not trying to be combative; if you disagree with this assessment, just leave a comment explaining why and we can perhaps change it back.

Brennan
