I am trying to place certain images into a Writer document. Other images work fine, but I can’t seem to make these ones work - I just get a black box with the image’s aspect ratio.
These are BMP files made by an obscure conversion utility. They open fine in chrome and gwenview and gimp. Moreover. if I use imagemagick or gimp to convert to tiff or png, the problem persists!
After a conversion to JPG the images do display but JPG affects the quality. A Gimp conversion to PSD also fixes the issue, but not an ImageMagick conversion, and I’d really prefer ImageMagick because I have a lot of these images,
I would appreciate any hints on how to insert the images (preferably as they are or with an automatic conversion). Also, do I need to raise a bug?
EDIT: it looks like the image comes back if I set the brightness to 10% (it is at 0 when image is inserted). But for other images brightness is also 0% and they are normal. Still not sure what is happening.

I start Writer, click the icon to create a blank new file, go to Insert>Image…, and select this image. I see the image as a black rectangle. Resulting ODT file: http://www.ramendik.ru/blankimage.odt
