Subject: [Scribus] Drop Shadows going solid and hard edged in the PS File
First off I am a newbie to scribus.
In Gimp I took our company logo and made a nice drop shadow. The shadow
effect looks really good. Nicely blurred and soft edges. I added this to
In the PDF file (though colours change significantly for the worse) the
shadow effect remains untouched i.e. no problem.
However, in a PS file (the colours are good) the shadow effect becomes
solid with hard edges i.e. looks awful.
Can anybody help around this problem?
How did you create the drop shadow in GIMP? My guess is you're using alpha-channel to control opacity and while PDF-1.4 supports transparency, it (use of transparency) can cause such problems for a good many PDF processing programs.
Just a guess on my part.
