Why is Libreoffice so slow at loading graphics? [closed]

Why does Libreoffice always load graphics, which have been cut and pasted from the internet or other sources, via a hyperlink? Why aren't graphics embedded to improve load times?

Moreover, what's with the huge drag times associated with scrolling through a document?

Is there anything a USER can do to improve these issues within the framework of the Libreoffice OPTIONS section?

Finally, why can't one align an image in the center of the page using the standard alignment tools?

Win7/LibreO 3.5.6. I can drag your avatar in this page to Writer, without any delay, and with right-click: Anchor-To page, Alignment: Base in Middle, to center in the page.

There's an option "Break Link" via menu "Edit → Links...".
