[scribus] Washed out images in PDF printing to Adobe

When you say that you "print to Adobe Acrobat" it's not clear to me what
you mean. You mean that export to PDF from Scribus, then open up in Acrobat?
If you install the full ($$$) version of Adobe Acrobat (not the "free" 
(in certain respects) Reader) a print driver is installed so you can 
choose file print (from any Windows application) and select Acrobat PDF 
to generate a PDF.

I think obviously you would normally want to use the Scribus direct to 
PDF option to have exact positioning and formatting, but Tom has need 
for a specific PDF standard which is not yet available in a stable version
(I'm sure John C will be along shortly to remind us (again) it is in 
1.5.0 and that he uses it ....)

Tom is using the Acrobat Print Driver because the spec he needs is an 
option in the print driver, but I wonder if all aspects of positioning 
and formating survive the "printing to" process?
