[scribus] getting tiffs

I tried to load both images. The smaller image loads fine; the larger image
crashed Scribus three times. I took it into an image editing program and
reduced the size (so that it was the same size as the one that does load)
and it worked great.

I'm running Scribus 1.4.0.rc4 on Windows 7 -- an AMD Athlon II X2 250 (3.00
GHz) with 4 gigs of ram.

Hope that helped someone!

the image loads correctly here...

not too much RAM (well, enough of it, but not so much), not a fast CPU

but, well, some sort of linux and a distribution + window manager which
leave all the process power for the applications needing it.
(ok, i have admit that i was looking a film in a flash application and gimp
was also open...)

we have had some issues with people failing to load big images in windows...
i wonder if scribus has a problem there...

... or if it would be easier if people started to switch to linux because
it's simply better... at least for loading big images into scribus...

can anybody using windows also try to load the image?

and, you, do you really need such a big image?
