[Scribus] best image format
Wed Apr 4 17:03:19 CEST 2007
During the conversion of my manual from InDesign to Scribus, I have noticed that InDesign handles
the placement of PDF images a little better than Scribus. Let me fill you in. I use Autodesk
Inventor to model our product, make a 2D print (3D isometric line art), and then save the 2D print
out as a PDF. This worked well in InDesign because the PDF's didn't seem to degrade, in other words
they kept their resolution when scaling up and down.
After a page was finished in InDesign, I would export the page out as a PDF file. This printed very
well and looked very good in Adobe Reader. Scribus on the other hand prints pretty well but the
finished PDF of the page looks very bad and takes a long time to render all of the images in Adobe
Instead of PDF files as my images, should I be using something else, like eps or tiff? I am using 3D
isometric line art and I want the lines to be as crisp a possible when scaling the images up or down
in an image frame.
