Extending OpenOffice.org

[ Thanks to Sean Parsons for this link. ]

"The most significant item when preparing documents, presentations, and spreadsheets is the appearance of the final product. While fonts are important you'll want more than that. You will want nice templates and good clip-art. The default templates may not cover the range of things you're looking for. I have created my own set of 18 templates (11 ooimpress, 1 oodraw, 4 oowriter, and 2 oocalc). These templates can be added as an extension making it very easy to integrate them. You can add my template pack from here.

"Clip art is also a useful way to add some excitement to a document. Clker.com provides online royalty free public domain clip art and they have an extension to better integrate it with OOo. The clker.com OpenOffice.org addon provides tight integration with clker.com by linking the cliparts you choose and save to your clipart basket will then appear in the extension window inside OOo. Almost all their cliparts are in ODG, SVG, and PNG so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues."
