Use Open Office to convert files to PDFs

To whom it may concern:

Is Open Office capable of converting documents and/or images to pdf format?
Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Yes, you can convert ODF documents to PDF. You can insert images into an  
ODF (for example an .odt or .odg document) and export to PDF from there.

What you do is open your document in OpenOffice.org – it can be any  
document that OpenOffice.org can open, and then you export it to PDF.  
There are some settings to make if you do it from the File menu. There is  
also an Export to PDF button in the tool bar, but that is a more direct  
export function that doesn't allow you do change any settings.

[Blake ([hidden email]) is not subscribed and will probably not see responses unless directly
copied.]

If you can open the document in one of the OpenOffice.org components, you can use File > Export to
save it as a PDF; this does not replace the original document but creates a new file. If what you
are trying to use is in a supported graphic format (like .jpg or .png) you can use Writer, and
Insert > Picture > From file, then again the Export. Or if the image is in the clipboard, you can
copy it into a Writer document. You may need to adjust the page orientation or margins (Format >
Page) for best results.
