Beginner Talk / Re: Maximum "weight" of a Scribus file ?
« Last post by pierruel on Today at 01:03:54 am »
All right a.l.e. it's not easy to figure things without seeing anything. I just hesitate to attach too many screenshots.
First of all I don't see any reason either and I hope to understand what happens with the help of the forum.
I did as you wrote: created a new file called test_img.sla and tried to load the pictures which failed to load in my score. What a surprise: I was able to load 3 of them, including the one who refused to load into my real file and then I was stuck again (that test file has 10 pages of which 3 contain a picture). The attached shot "7_img" shows a display of my picture editing software with a series of pictures including the last one I was able to load and the following ones: all contain staves and notes but if I insist importing them I get empty images.
My Scribus is slow to open but it opens itself each time. Already the preview is empty, as shown on a second screenshot.
My demonstration is not perfect because it doesn't show what happens with one same and specific image, sorry; it's because there are no numbers on the images and the bar nombers are much too tiny to be seen. I'll try and make a more accurate test but it takes more time.
Hope the above will be helpful.
Thank you very much.
Regards
Pierre

i don't see any reason why you should not be able to load a 136th image if the 135 before that were ok.

when there is a memory (size) problem, scribus normally lets you do what you wanted to do and then fails on opening the file next time you try to open it.

can you load the image number 136 in a new scribus file with no images in there yet?
if you cannot do so, then it's that specific image that is at fault.

please remember, that we don't see what is on your monitor and we don't know what you already have tried.
except if you tell us...

Of course I've to learn more about pictures, especially when they are numerized, but I think that the problem is elsewhere.
Please look what I wrote: I'm working on a music score where 1 page A4 = 1 picture. On a very  plain logical level, why was I able to import without any difficulty 135 pictures and not the 136th ? There is no matter of pictures' format nore display. Something works very well for 135 pages and then stops working for the 136th, who can explain ?
I would be very grateful for an explanation.

I would rather use GIMP all the way for such a task (but of course it is interesting to show how parts of it can be done in Scribus).

This tutorial is very good for learning how to do "hand drawn" maps in GIMP

i've created my first grav (https://getgrav.org) and i'm pretty happy with the way it's working.

i plan to implement martin's template with it... and make my scribus planet + a new knowledge base part of it.

eh eh... i think that you need to learn a few more things about images and layout...

the main difference between png and jpg is that jpg changes your image when saving it. it has been created for photos...

also, scribus does not (by default) include the images in the .sla. it just links to them. so, don't try to move the .sla or the images after you have linked them (if you want to move your project you need to use the "file > collect for output" tool).

finally, if you have an issue with a specific image (and if the image does not contain "huge" secrets, you might want to upload it here, so that we can have a look at it...

Hi a.l.e.
Thank you for answering.
I don't get the preview (I get a structured background) and if I click on it I get a blank (empty) image in my image frame. But the most funny (peculiar of course !) is that I imported successfully 135 pictures before the problem occured. The weight of the .sla file is 346 Ko, the reason why I asked about a maximum weight permitted.
The images are produced by my music notation software, which can export under .jpg, .bmp and .png formats, the best one beeing .png if I understand well.
What dragging from a picture browser is concerned, can I use Picasa to do it ?
Is it foreseeable that the same issue would appear (or not) if loading 135 and more pictures in .png format into my .sla file ?
Thank you for your patience !
Regards
Pierre
P.S. The weight of my pictures with the .jpg format is between 700 and 1100 Ko each but I see that their weight is not added to the one of the .sla file, isn't it ?

sal├╝ pierre

so, you don't get the preview when clicking on the image?
but can you load them in an image frame?
if it does not load in an image frame, can you upload one of those images so that we can test it?
if it does load, and your problem is that it's harder to see which image you're importing, you might be able to drag and drop your images directly from a file manager or picture browsers (depending on your setup it will work or not).

finally, converting the existing images to a different format won't help.
you would have to regenerate the images from the original software...
next time, try to export to png or tif instead of jpg...

Thank you a.l.e.,
My post wasn't clear enough, sorry: when I'm in the "import a picture" window, if I select a picture, a thumbnail of the selected picture normally appears in the small window on the right. In my case there is no thumbnail appearing, although the concerned picture exists (and occupies btw the whole space of the A4 format minus margins).
I wasn't aware about the picture's format: which one would be the best (unfortunately I imported already more than 100 pages/pictures ! Is it possible to convert them to another format inside Scribus or should I convert them in a picture editing software ?)
Thank you in advance
regards
Pierre
