Title: image (photo) looks fine in pdf but prints with symbols on top
Post by: Karela on June 11, 2015, 06:08:25 am
I have some images (3, to be exact) in a 76 page document that have printed strangely, with dark overlay and lines of white symbols on them. When I look at Scribus and at the pdf in Preview and Safari, they look fine.

Any ideas what might make this happen? Two things that I thought might make a difference:1)using rgb images in a document set to greyscale, or 2)using super high resolution images. I resolved both of these potential issues, but can't actually check it until I can get back to the print place tomorrow morning.

hi karela,

let's hope that the workaround worked for you!

however: strange thing!

can you provide the document (if needed in private) so that the guys in charge of the pdf engine can have a look at it?

i'd need:

- the project exported from "file > collect for output".
- the original pdf you have sent to the print shop.
- a photo of the broken result.

you can upload all that in the http://bugs.scribus.net (and mark it as private, so that only the developers can see it) or provide it to me and i'll upload it there.

have a nice day
