Hi again.. Thanks for the report. Since gradient issue has been reported in another bug, lets focus only in not rotated picture.

After unzip the file, I saw the picture is PNG and created with Excel 2010 (14.0300). Don't know if it's the same behavior with another image format.

Confirm reproduced with LO,,, under Ubuntu 12.04 x86

Interestingly LO loaded that image rotated with rotation angle: 343,18 degrees.
But AOO 4.1.1 loaded the image with 338,80 degrees rotation angle and -7,96 degrees slant angle.

Could you check what is the correct angle with Excel?
Comment 2 ign_christian 2014-09-09 15:38:03 UTC
WPS (Kingsoft) Office 2014 tells that image has 16 degrees rotation, which is reversed interpretation compared to LO. Perhaps it's the same interpretation with MSO.
Comment 3 squeezechart 2014-09-09 15:58:57 UTC
Excel 2010 says rotation is 17%

I think this is regression because of this change set http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=1abc0695d770eebd21256a86aeee14a5384d84c7

This issue is duplicate of https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=67776.
Comment 8 Xisco Faulí 2014-11-14 13:52:54 UTC
I do confirm that 1abc0695d770eebd21256a86aeee14a5384d84c7 introduced this regression. I add 'bisected' to Keyboard.
Last commit from Noel was on 2014-02-03 so I'm not sure he's still involved in the project to take a look...

test doc for other bug

Attached document is broken by the patch. I'm not going to accept the patch in its current form as it just reverts another fix.

Steps to reproduce:
1. In Calc or Excel, insert an image
2. Rotate the image
3. Save as XLSX
4. Open in Calc

This import issue affects both Calc and Excel generated XLSX files.
