Which file formats are supported by KOffice?

Many KOffice applications support the filter architecture (i.e.: they are able to use filters for file conversion.) The filters are not perfect and some not even done. The status of the current filters is listed below, sorted per application.

Note: this document is about the KOffice 1.6 branch.

Krita

Krita can use ImageMagick for importing and exporting images. This means that, in addition to the file formats listed below, Krita can work with all images that your installation of ImageMagick supports. This includes all common image file formats, including the native formats of Photoshop and the Gimp.

More information on file formats supported by ImageMagick.

Joining the developers

There are many filters that we would like and many filters that need improvement, although sadly we do not have enough developers working on KOffice.
