Page 1 of 9 OpenOffice Draw Tutorial – Digital Photography Flyer www.flyertutor.com Step 01: Document Setup To begin, move the mouse over the blank canvas, then right click and select Page > Page Setup. The Page Setup window will appear. Step 02: Format/Orientation On the Page tab, change the Paper Format to Letter, and Orientation to Portrait. Then set Margins to "0.50" each. Then click OK. Step 03: Construct Background Draw 2 Rectangles that go side by side. Select the Rectangle Icon from the Drawing Toolbar below. Upon drawing your first Rectangle, it should have a "Blue" Fill and a "Black" Stroke by default. We need one rectangle to be "Black" and the other to be "Maroon". Page 2 of 9 OpenOffice Draw Tutorial – Digital Photography Flyer www.flyertutor.com Step 04: Line and Filling Select the 1st Rectangle, then go up to the Line and Filling Toolbar, click the last down arrow and select "Black". Then select the 2nd Rectangle, right click over it and select "Area" from the menu that appears. Step 05: Area Window This will bring up the Area Window. Go to the Colors Tab. Step 06: Custom Color In the Names box, type in what you want to call your Custom Color, in this case it is "Maroon". Then go over to RGB and set Red to "128", Green to "0" and Blue to "0". Then click Add. You can scroll down the Table of colors to verify that your new color has been added. Then click OK. The colored background for the flyer will look like this: Page 3 of 9 OpenOffice Draw Tutorial – Digital Photography Flyer www.flyertutor.com Step 07: Add Text Select the Text Icon from the Drawing Toolbar. Click anywhere on the canvas and start entering Text, in this case it will be the Flyer title, "Aiden's Digital Photography". Select all the Text, then choose the Center Icon from the Text Formatting Toolbar. Step 08: Text Formatting Select the down arrow on the right side of "Arial" and change the Font to "Disko" which is a free Font that was downloaded from www.FontFreak.com. Set the Font Size to "48". Then while the Text is still selected, click on the down arrow on the Font Color Icon which is on the Text Formatting Toolbar and select the color "White". The Text should look like this: Step 09: Add More Text Add the remaining Text on the document. Here the Font is "Segoe Print", a free Font that was downloaded at www.FontFreak.com. Repeat the steps for centering and changing the Font Color to "White". Click on the Bold Icon to set all Text to Bold except the Flyer Title. The Flyer should look like this: Step 10: Create Star Next we will add Images to the Flyer. First add a Star. Select the Star Icon from the Drawing Toolbar. This will open the Star Menu. Select the "5 Pointed Star" which is 3rd on the list. Then holding down your left mouse button, draw the Star on the Flyer. By default, the Color will be "Blue". Page 4 of 9 OpenOffice Draw Tutorial – Digital Photography Flyer www.flyertutor.com Step 11: Rotate Star Select the Star and click on the Effects Icon on the Drawing Toolbar. 8 Red Circles will appear around the Star. Move the mouse over any Corner Circle, hold and rotate to desired spot. It should look like this: Step 12: Change Star's Color Reselect the Star and go to the Line and Filling Toolbar. (Toolbar normally appears longer) Set the Fill to "White" and change the Line Style to Invisible in the drop down menu. Again right click over the Star and select Area from the menu that appears. Step 13: Star Transparency In the Area window, go to the Transparency Tab. Set Transparency to "65%" and click OK. Page 5 of 9 OpenOffice Draw Tutorial – Digital Photography Flyer www.flyertutor.com Step 14: The Shadow Tab Instead of selecting the Drop Shadow Icon that is clearly visible on the Line and Filling Toolbar, we must first change the Drop Shadow Settings. To do this, right click over the Star and select Area again. Then select the Shadow Tab. Step 15: Shadow Settings Select the "Check Box" next to "Use Shadow". Set Distance to "0.06", Color to "Black" and Transparency to "0%". Then click OK. Step 16: Royalty Free Images The result should look like this: Next we can finish up the document by adding Images to it. I downloaded photos from these 3 sites that have Royalty Free Photos to use without any hassel. www.Public-Domain-Image.com www.ImageAfter.com Graphic-Bank.com Page 6 of 9 OpenOffice Draw Tutorial – Digital Photography Flyer www.flyertutor.com Step 17: Insert Images To insert an Image click on the From File Icon . You can also do this by going to Insert > Picture > From File. This will bring up the Insert Picture Window. Locate your file, then click Open. Once the Images are put on Canvas, Resize and move into desired location. Step 18: Line Settings Then while holding down the Shift Key, select each Image. Right click and select Line from the menu that appears. This will bring up the Line Window. Under Line Properties, change Style to "Continuous", set Color to "White", Width to "0.04" and change Transparency to "0%". Then click OK. All images will now have a "White" border. Page 7 of 9 OpenOffice Draw Tutorial – Digital Photography Flyer www.flyertutor.com Step 19: Arrange Images Right click again and select Area from the menu. Go to the Shadow Tab, apply the same Shadow Settings as with the Star. Click OK. Select the Arrange Icon on the Drawing Toolbar. This will bring up the Arrange Menu. The first 4 icons are "Bring to Front", "Bring Forward", "Send Backward", and "Send to Back". Use them to arrange the Images. Step 20: Save File This is what the finished document will look like. Go to File > Save. It will be saved as a Scalable Vector Graphic (svg) file by default.
