ah, that's good news, so there is still hope :-)

I have the problem with pdfs containing advertisements, so they include 
photos, grafic elements and text.
And I want to send the endproduct to a online-printer (flyer-alarm.de) 
in Germany in order to print a DINA4 magazine.
In the moment the photos in the pdfs generated from scribus look like 
they have been copied on a color-copymachine ...

Would it make a difference, if I convert the pdfs into some other format 
(jpg, tiff, what shall I choose??) before I load them into scribus?

Hope, that's enough information, otherwise please ask!!!
