You are confusing programs: a Word Processor (such as LibreOffice

I don't think anybody is confusing something. Not so long ago with you
mobile phone you could make phonecalls, nothing else. Things change and I
think that from a modern word processor you can expect to rotate an image
(at least 90 and 180 degrees) and to add image captions below and above an
image.

just look at what other word processors can do. libo should not fall behind
that.

I suggest that you use the FLOSS (Free/Libre Open Source Software)
Desktop
Publisher named Scribus

you are right, for real dtp applications scribus is the correct choice. but
again, "normal" users of a word processor expect some simple dtp-functions
like the ones mentioned. If someone wants to do a simple birthday invitation
card, he/she should not have to go dtp (or even gimp etc) to do so...


Personally, I'd say GIMP is the wrong tool to design a birthday card. Use
Draw of Inkscape for design graphics and GIMP for editing photographs and
scans.  :-)

Bernhard
