Created attachment 76170 [details]
ODT document illustrating the problem outlined above.

Problem description: 
Using the Pipette tool in the Edit Contour window when setting Wrap options causes a loss of pixels from the image.

Steps to reproduce:
1. ....Insert an image into a new blank Writer document.
2. ....Right-click the image, select Page Wrap from the context menu.
3. ....Right click the image again and select Edit contour from the context menu.
4. ....Select the Pipette tool, leave the Color Tolerance setting at default (not relevant to bug)
5. ....Click on the image.

Current behavior:
All pixels in the color range that was clicked-on are removed from the image, and the contour is set as the image frame.

Expected behavior:
No removal of pixels; a contour line set around the image at the color level clicked-on.
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: release

Thanks for reporting!

I can reproduce this behavior using Linux Mint 14 x64 with LibreOffice Version (Build ID: 7e5467ff8f30d821f4fbf69cb2769163eb64c2c) and LibreOffice Version (Build ID: b4966ea69ff0ad6944bd16d8a09ecb27a1704c1).

Therefore I mark this as NEW
Normal: does prevent you to make high quality work
Medium: default priority in the Normal-range.

Kind regards,

Dear John Smith,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
