Ok, I looked at the page and everything was already setup as described. Just 
on a hunch, I went over to a windows machine and Reader 7.0 on Windows 
displays the PDF just fine. I re-downloaded and re-installed Reader (7.0) for 
Linux figuring maybe I had an old version, but the pictures are still dark.

So it looks like a Reader on Linux problem (maybe just a "my Linux" problem) 
and not a Scribus problem. Any further suggestions would be appreciated 
though. I do have some Linux using friends.
Fail to learn history-repeat it.
Fail to learn rights-lose them.
Learn both-get screwed by previous two groups.
