EuroOffice Online Clipart allows you to quickly add free images from the Wikimedia Commons collection to your text documents in OpenOffice.org Writer. OpenOffice.org Impress and Draw documents are not supported directly at the moment, but there is a workaround to solve this problem: You are able to copy-paste the inserted images from text documents into presentations or drawings.

You need to have an active internet connection to be able to search for and download images. The images are embedded in your document (not linked).

The source of the images is Wikimedia Commons. Almost all of the images can be used freely, but many require proper attribution. EuroOffice Online Clipart automatically inserts the images with a caption that attributes the image to the author as named on the Wikimedia Commons page and links to its web page. For many images this is enough, but it is best to check the web page of the image and take a look at the license terms to make sure. Wikimedia Commons has a guide for complying with the license terms of different images.

Hello,

On Ubuntu 10.04 and Openoffice 3.2.1.
After restarting Openoffice, i try to insert a picture.
But when i fill the field and press Serch button, nothing happens.

Why ?
Thanks for help

Frederic

First let me say this is a wonderful extension! Thank you.

When importing a picture there is a frame or something around it (still learning open office).

How do I remove this after I delete the text to check the license? Any tips or hints would be appreciated.

Hi,

thanks for your Mail Tibor, yes that works: You can access the Cliparts in Writer as described (via Insert-menue). No trouble to transfer them in Impress then.

Thanks again an best regards,

Thanks for a great extension! It would be nice if some of the author/licensing info could be included in the caption instead of just saying "Check author and licensing at Wikimedia Commons" - that's not going to be followable in a printed form of the document...

This is exactly what the extension does when it is able to!

However there is quite a bit of variance in how the author is credited and there is a large number of licenses. We tried to make sure the typical licenses and author attribution formats are handled, but it is possible that there is a typical scenario that we did not cover, or even that something changed and the extension does not handle something now that it had previously handled. If you could send a few URLs we will look into it!

Hi,

Great extension - thanks for the work.

Quote: "Future plans: We are however open to suggestions for other repositories to support..."

Are you aware of http://www.openclipart.org/ - also free? The images there are, from what I can tell, primarily icons and vector graphics (i.e. created) rather than actual pictures (i.e. real things). It would be a great complimentary addition to Wikimedia Commons - very useful for "Impress" presentations or "Draw" diagrams.

Thanks.

Thanks for the link, it looks good! We will look into integrating it.

Version 1.0 only supports Wikimedia Commons. It currently hosts 3,835,912 images, so I believe it can satisfy most needs. Wikimedia Commons goes to great lengths to ensure a clean copyright status of the images which I also find important. We are however open to suggestions for other repositories to support, and to suggestions in general. So let us know how you would like to see this extension evolve!

I installed this on my OpenOffice 3.0 (Ubuntu) and it doesn't seem to work. I can't find any changes.

You have to restart OpenOffice.org after the installation of the extension and after that you should see a new menu item in the Insert menu ("EuroOffice Online Clipart") and in the Help menu ("About EuroOffice Online Clipart"). If these are missing, let me know at darabos.daniel@multiracio.com!

Hi,

Using Ubuntu 9.10 with OOo 3.1. Restarted after installation. Now seeing the menue item in the "help" menue, but not in the "insert" menue; using the german OOo version. Any help?

Thanks in advance! Clic

It started to work as I restarted OpenOffice :)
