Description Philippe Jung 2015-06-06 11:21:57 UTC
I have an Impress presentation with image inserted from a file and cropped. I want to save space getting rid of the invisible part.
Right click on it -> Edit with external tools
Gimp opens editing image SDG4D0F.png
I select a rectangular area and resize to the selection.
I save the image erasing the previous png
I close Gimp
Back in Impress, I do again Edit with external tools. 

I expect to see only a part of the image (the previously selected rectangular zone) 

I get the full image displayed.

Yeah, in my case it opens Irfanview. I cropped, saved the tmp file to the temp folder. Impress didn't show any change. Edited again, new tmp file with the old uncropped image.

We got bug 103455, which is nearly similar.
Philippe: does it now work for you with the first image? If it doesn't work, the bugs are different somehow.

This works for me in 6.0.6, and also bug 103455 is fixed, so marking this as WorksForMe (although it should be noted that many external editors are breaking the image now...bug 119479)
