[Solved] ODG/ODF draw to Jpeg

Open Office has a very nice art center but it's not set up for JPEG. The only files I appear to be allowed is saving as ODG or ODF Drawing. I very much want to be able to use Open Office draw to complete my manuscript for Kindle. Or does kindle have a special art program I can use. But I really like the Open Office draw section. How do I change it to JPEG?

G'day, and welcome to the community forum.

File | Export... and, from the dropdown list labelled File format, select JPEG

JPG should only be used for photos as it uses lossy compression.

If you are saving from Draw, and the page is anything except a photo; or if you have any text or draw objects with edges on the page, then you should save as PNG because saving as JPG will add blotches and artefacts and blur edges. PNG uses lossless compression.

See [Tutorial] Some useful hints on using images for a discussion on how best to handle images.
