I wrote the docs, and my thinking is guided by the following:
Tiff is one of the most time tested and most recognized image file
formats for prepress. GIMP, the image editor 90% of Scribus users
will be using for their editing in my testing and experience is very
reliable in TIFF export.
In fact for 1.3.x, I actually prefer native PSD. Franz has done a
simply brilliant job of making the color management and all the extra
features of PSD accessible in a way not even other layout apps can
do. This includes supporting paths, layering and more.
Why, I downplayed jpeg ? I was trying to avoid the typical unknowing
user unfamiliar with pre-press grabbing 72 dpi jpegs from a web page,
lobbing them in doc then complaining it looks good on the screen and
prints crap. Moreover, a certain type of jpeg called progressive is
pure poison in postscript printing. It is not always obvious if a
jpeg is progressive or not when opened locally. Scribus now will
refuse to load progressive jpegs in both 1.2.x and 1.3.x
Yes, you can use high quality jpegs in Scribus. I personally do not
choose it, but for the broad range of users with Scribus, using tiff
is sound advice and I stand by it.
