The default file format is .ODG which, unfortunately, is not compatible with many other programs. Fortunately there is a free online conversion tool that can convert your .ODG file to a .JPG or .PNG file, which is compatible with a number of different programs, thereby allowing you to use those programs to edit or print the image.

Step 1

Open a Web browser window, and navigate to the Convert Files ODG to JPG Converter at

Click the "Browse" button in the center of the window, then double-click your .ODG file.

Step 3

Step 4

Click the "Convert" button at the center of the window.

Step 5

Right-click the link at the center of the window, then click "Save Link As," or "Save Target As." Your converted file will be downloaded as a .ZIP file.

  • If you have installed OpenOffice on your computer, you can open the file in OpenOffice Draw, and convert the file to a .PDF, which is a file format compatible with a number of programs. To convert the file to a .PDF, click "File" at the top of the window, click "Export as PDF," then click "Export." The converted .PDF file can then be opened in a variety of different image editing programs and converted to a .JPG or .PNG file from there.
