Centering images manually in LibreOffice Impress can be very tedious.

Is there any way I can automate it or make it easier?

Just go to ViewSnap Lines and tick all of the options. Also enable ViewRuler :


If you do this you will be able to see the center points of slides and stuff. You can also right click on the object and go to Alignment :

                                                   Look for Alignment, and the use the 'Centre*' options to centre the object.

By the way, to screen-shot menus and stuff, open up the screen-shot dialog, you can set a delay and take a screenshot of the menus. – Wilf Mar 2 '14 at 21:43
Thanks you telling me that!! BTW, for future reference you need to search screenshot in applications to find it. It took me a minute to figure that out. – rajlego Mar 2 '14 at 22:01

Just go to View->Snap Lines (put the mouse over it)>(Make sure all options are checkmarked) Then go to View->Ruler (make sure it is checkmarked to)

If you do this you will be able to see the center points of slides and stuff.
