[scribus] PDF Export

I am having difficulty with printing and PDF export.  I am printing very
large white text onto a black background with an overlaid image with blend
mode "Luminosity".  When it exports, it has:

1) Very small fonts (instead of very large)
2) Black fonts (instead of white)
3) The background image looks like it might be blended right, but it is
mostly obscured by a large dark-colored box, which I presume is the
bounding box for the main text.

The only warning I am getting if I do PDF 1.4 export is the DPI of my image.

It works perfectly if I export as an image.  My current solution, which
works, is to export to PNG and then convert to PDF.  However, I would
prefer to have a vector version of the PDF, if possible.

It works good if I export to SVG.  The image is not properly blended, but
everything else looks good.

I am brand new to Scribus, so I imagine I am doing something wrong, but am
not sure.  Any help is appreciated.
