Hi Peter,

I just didn't spend any time on it, but just a suggestion:
Whats about to use the vector shape (in this case: the star) in the 
background as cutting-mask for an image such as png, jpeg, eps or 
whatever? Maybe it's possible to use sodipodi for preparation of an eps 
with these qualities?

I use until jet rarely scribus 0.9.7, only for experiments. I rely on 
adobe stuff until yet, but I hope the experiences made by the users of 
this list will pushing me soon to try one of my new projects on 
This requires enough time to learn the programm, but its quite similar 
to xpress 3.x and I can program my own shortcuts.

Thanks to the developers, particulary Frank Schmid to made an 
alternative in DTP possible!



ps: I'm sorry for my poor english... ;)
