[Scribus] Transparent images
Sat Dec 30 16:54:38 CET 2006
After a couple of trials and errors, I decided to post to the list.
I need to import a b/w nameplate with transparent background for my tutorial
on newspaper design. Scribus 188.8.131.52 seems unable to handle 1-bit TIFF files
with transparency. What are my other options?
I was considering 1-bit PNG files. Are those okay?
The RGB images imported into Scribus will be auto-converted into CMYK if I
select "Print" under Color when Exporting PDFs, right? Does that mean I don't
need to convert RGB images into CMYK separated TIFFs using GIMP's Separate
plugin? What are the differences? I'm asking because I sometimes need
transparent background, so switching to PNG-based workflow seemed like a good
Finally, I wanted to create a path for an image in the GIMP, but I have no
clue about how to import the path into Scribus and use it as a contour for
wrapping text around it. I don't mind drawing the paths manually (heck, I
even have to do it in InDesign most of the time because of poor PSD
transparency support), but if there is a way of importing GIMP paths, that
would be excellent.
