I opened the MS Publisher document from my associate. I then clicked 
File>Save & Send>Create PDF/XPS and saved the PDF file in My Documents. 
I am not very familiar with Gimp even though I have the latest version 
on my computer. How do I open the PDF in Gimp with 1200 dpi and save it 
as tif or png. How do I  import the resulting file into my Scribus 
document? Your assistance is appreciated.
