Title: How to import an image and have it maintain it's original size
Post by: dsw67 on February 15, 2018, 04:38:59 pm
Hi,

I'm new to Scribus, so apologies if this has been asked before. Is it possible to import images into Scribus so that they maintain their original dimensions? Right now they seem to resize themselves to whatever size frame I have created.

Thanks,
Dana

hi dana

go to 'preferences' → 'tools' → 'image frame properties' (the second icon) – with 'free scaling' and '100%' for both directions you'll get images scaled to the ppi value written in the image file.
depending on the origin of your images, this may sometimes be what you expect – at least it's what you're asking for…
