Hi, Scribus works very well. A little Photobook 17,5x17,5 cm 112  
pages, all pages full photographies, makes a PDF-X3 of 993 MB. The  
images - jpg - makes 540 MB. Only few text, only few frames and  
groups with names.

It was very slow the last pages but an iBook G4 (OSX 10.4; scribus  
1.351) with 750 MB RAM did it.


But why the PDF is so big? Shure I set full quality (zip) and 300  
dpi. Than it is the same to set the quality of compression to middle  
or maximum. It is both the same 993 MB. May be it differs if not set
