I made a quick test.
I created a presentation, inserted an image and a caption; then made
I just used two buttons in the drawing toolbar (my indication may be
inaccurate as I'm working with the italian version of OpenOffice, thus
translating the names of the tools): the crop tool is the last one in
the drawing toolbar, and the colour button (the third one) for
I cropped the image, and resized it to fit to the slide. Then I exported
the slide as a png and the result was the expected cropped and captioned
The limit is that the exported file has the resolution of the slide:
1058x794. In fact if I resize the image and make it wider than the slide
and export it I get it "auto-cropped" to 1058x794.
Maybe your problem is that you use the "save as an image" command from
the right-button contextual menu on the image: this one only saves the
image in its original shape and dimension. You must use the "export"
command in the file menu.
