there mite be a 1-step method but what i would do is save the file to pdf using open-office. then convert the pdf -> jpg. using image-magick the syntax would be like
Code:
convert file.pdf file.jpg

You could also use a screen grabber to do that. I'd be curious about why you would want to convert .odt files to .jpg format.

Converting from ODT to PDF seems possible to batch up so the two step method wouldn't be too bad as long as the files are too numerous:

(note, ignore the fact the link mentions Windows as answer number 1 gives a Linux solution)
