Title: Embedding pictures
Post by: Mrstubby on March 28, 2018, 12:57:19 am
How do you embed pictures. I’m making a flyer but even though I save before closing down when I open the document again the frames are there but the pictures have disappeared.

Two possibilities pop into my mind:

1) Did you move the picture files from the originally linking file directory or modify/edit the pictures after saving and closing the Scribus file?  If so, use the image manager to re-link.
2) Are there any words in the picture box defining picture name?  Check to see if the preview is turned off if this is the case.

there are ways for embedding the images in a .sla but i would not recommend using it in "normal" workflows.

you should try to follow mnawij hints and "learn" how to correctly link and manage the images...
