Equation as png

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 72.37.171.52] on August 22, 2008 04:06 PM
To create an equation as a png file with OpenOffice.org, use its "Draw" component. Format the page to be the size of the graphic you want, insert an equation (Insert --> Object --> Formula), then export the file to png format.

Also, I second the suggestion of LyX as an easy-to-use front-end to LaTeX.
