stripes in PDF file

(1/2) > >>

thomas59:
Using Windows XP and Scribus 1.4 RC1 or Scribus 1.3.3.14 to save PDF file.  File has text and pictures on it.  Pictures sometimes have horizontal stripes when printed that are NOT visible on screen.  It does not seem to be a printer problem since the stripes do not go all the way across the entire page.  Stripes will be on one picture only and not on the next picture immediately adjacent to it.  It is always the same picture, not different pictures at random.

Can anyone tell me what to do to fix?

Thanks in advance.

Does that particular picture have a color that doesn't appear in any of the other pictures?

Nermander:
And what format is the picture? JPEG, PNG, EPS? Is color management used? Do you get the same result of different printers or when printing from different PDF readers?

thomas59:
1.  Images are all JPEGs
2.  Color mgmt not enabled.  Scribus crashes when I turn it on.
3.  No unique colors in the photos.  Happens on a Xerox Docucolor 550, but not happen on my little Epson.  Office Depot swears that it is not the Xerox, which makes some sense due to the fact that the stripe does not go all the way across the page, just on one photo, but not the photo immediately adjacent to it.

Any other pertinent info I'm missing?

Nermander:
Do you print directly from Scribus or from a PDF?

Since you don't get the problem on all printers I think there might be a printer driver problem. Printing from Scribus has problems, so the recommended way is to create a PDF and print it from Adobe Reader.
