yes thanks. But the pdf is not happy with transarency and sometimes
puts black lines around some of the images.
It's not a big deal. I hope I don't upset anybody with basic type
questions for a day or two.



I am not exactly sure what you are trying to do. If I understand correctly, you have created a Scribus document which contains a bunch of images which you would like to enhance somehow.  I don't know if this will help or not, but I have found that if I modify the original images with the GIMP (I guess you could use Photoshop instead), provided I keep the same sizes and file names, after I have saved them, the images in Scribus changes to the new version automatically. 

I am no expert, but I believe that Scribus doesn't actually have the images (or text either, for that matter) inside it. Rather, it keeps track of all those things, and shows them on your screen as they will appear (approximately).  When you create the PDF document, Scribus collects all those items, scales them properly, and passes them on to the resulting PDF document in the correct places.

I don't think it is a great idea to try to enhance/modify the images from the PDF (or EPS) document that might be created. You should get better results if you modify the original images with something like GIMP or Photoshop.

I hope this is helpful to you.
