Finally i found a way:

  1. Select the image.
  2. In the Image toolbox, there is a filter command: command it.
  3. Select the mosaic filter.
  4. Set the width and height pixels values. The bigger the values, the smaller the resolution and the smaller the file size.

Do exactly that: By hand.

LibreOffice is not an image editor! Use Gimp or some such to alter the pictures resolution.

Sometimes (most of the time) you get a document with images embedded without the image files. This is not a big problem since you could simply rightclick the image and save it, then edit it with anoter tool. The problem is to reinsert the image: by now, what i can do is insert another image and delete the old one, which causes the redefinition of the image meta information (Label, etc). Do you now how to "change" the image without changing the "figure"? – jgomo3 Apr 17 '12 at 20:07
