Once again, forgive my intrusion - this stuff is hard to learn.
Okay, the document I am attempting to create, using scribus, is NOT intended for printing. It will be a PDF shared over the web [an e-zine]. Until now I have always done my layouts using MS Word and am trying to learn DTP software so I can get more creative with my layouts.
All that being said, I must also add that the graphics I use for my zine are all simple web friendly jpegs. When loading them into scribus, unlike MS Word, they are reduced to illegible, blurry thumbnails. I can only assume this is because the default setting of the page/or canvas [to use an art program term] is very high. For example, the exact same simple jpegs, when added to an MS Word doc - appear larger, are not blurry and can be converted to a PDF for web quite simply. Because MS Word doesn't expect the images to be hi rez.
What I would like to know - is it possible for the page resolution - the working area itself - to be lowered to web specs? Or should I be searching for other software? I have read instructions about scaling images for export etc etc... none of this is helpful if the environ they are layed out in is too high a rez to begin with. 
Thank you for your time
