I'm mystified  what is the 'correct' proceedure for getting nice, LaTeXtypset equations into a slideshow (in this case, OpenOffice Impress)? This is what I've been doing:
TeX > DVI > PS > GIMP > copy & paste > ooffice (as bmp) It looks great, but I'm sure there's a way to save the effort?

You can use dvipng or dvigif to convert it directly to a image. Of course I'm on a linux machine, so I don't know if you have these.
The other option is to use the builtin math typesetting stuff in Openoffice. Personally, I don't even bother with OO Impress. I just go from latex>pdf and that's my presentation. I use Texmacs as the frontend. [edit] Here is dvipng for all platforms: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dvipng/

Hurray!
dvipng D 1000 T tight filename.tex Problems solved! The builtin equation editor isn't flexible enough  hence LaTeX. Just making a PDF presentation is a very good idea, though not for this particular talk.
