The problem witch jpeg is the compression. The quality of the picture
will get worser and worser with every saving. I use png without any
compression. Tiff is also a good format, but you should use gimp for
saving the pictures with tiff before you insert it into scribus,
because there are many different versions of tiff. But GIMP and
scribus use the same tif-library. So it's a good decision to save the
tiff-pictures with gimp.
