Hi all ,

I'm engaging in developing an extension(OXT)  for writer which allows users to

                * Re-size/Zoom images with different parameters
                * Rotate images by 90 degrees (right or left)
                * Rotate images from 0 degrees to 360 degrees
                * Crop images effectively
                * Compress Images
                * Download images to the app directly from Flickr.com
                * Take screen shots/web-cam snaps and edit them
                * Add text/watermarks to images

I already submitted my extension at Open office extension
repository.And I didn't find a place to submit it at LibreOffice yet.

You need Java Run Time (JRE) in order to use this product .And as it
involves some system calls this is more suitable for Windows users( I
will update with a complete Linux version soon)
This is still in beta phase with lot of possible improvements .And I
also have my own "To Do" list which I'm hoping implement ASAP . You
can visit

As this is my first step towards this wonderful and giant Open source
developing community ,I will be really glad if you can hit me back
with any feed backs .Please comment on the above pages mentioning any
drawbacks/bugs/improvements .

Thanks in advance !
