    Hi, not sure if this is the right subform to post this in but I'm not sure where else to put it.

    Basically, I wanted to combine two pictures (copying and pasting one over part of the other) and post it on Facebook. Problem is, I couldn't figure out how to do this in iPhoto. Luckily, I realized that I could do this easily in a program called OpenOffice.org Draw. However, I can't post it to Facebook (I'm assuming because Facebook doesn't recognize an .odg file as a picture). My question is, is there any way to convert this type of file into a picture type that I could load onto Facebook? I've seen some converters online but couldn't find any that are Mac compatible.

    Thanks for any help!

    From OpenOffice, use the Export option under the file menu to get it in a format Facebook can handle.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I tried exporting it, but when I tried to upload it it would go through the regular procedure (eg. notification saying data is sent) but at the end it says "unexpected error".
    Not really sure what to do now...


    EDIT: Problem solved, I just emailed the exported files.

    If all else fails, take a screenshot of the window and upload that. :)
