I need to create a couple of images that will be linked on my HTML pages. Currently I'm using Open Office PPT to draw these images which are mostly boxes and lines and I export them as jpg images. When I open these images, there is a lot of white space all around and when I tried to trim the size of this image the image is also compressed in size which I do not want. What I need is that the image should fill the whole area so that I can control the size of it on my HTML pages. Any suggestions on any tool that I should use instead of Open Office?

You can stay with OO if it satisfies your needs.

When you export a slide from Impress (~ PPT) you can check "Selection" in the lower left of the file dialogue. If it is unchecked you export the whole slide which often results in white margins. If it is checked only the selected elements are exported (that you need to select, of course, easiest with CTRL-A). You enter the size of the exported image in pixels in the next dialogue. When you only export selected elements these will fit the whole image.

Thanks. I will give it a try!
 
Yeah, but how did the squirrel get in there? Was it because of the tiny ad?
