Can't access my image files
« on: March 07, 2021, 12:51:37 am »
Hi, I am not able to insert an image into the image box as none of my images or image files in my computer show up in the box when I click on 'get image. Also my document files don't open' . The images are scanned in and also saved in word. I did manage to open one file in 'cloud'but the dpi was very reduced. Sorry if this sounds stupid. I have windows 10 and just downloaded scribus today after watching lots of videos. Thanks for your time.

hi jocelyn

first some questions:
  • what is your scribus version?
  • where are your images? (local on your computer, on an external drive, in the cloud…)
  • what is the file format of the images? (.tif, .jpg…)
  • what means; "my document files don't open"? can't you open your .sla files by double click? ore with 'file' → 'open' or 'open recent' inside scribus?

scribus may not work well with items in a cloud. i always work with local resources.

Thanks for the advice. I managed to access the pictures once I put them in a 'local' file and not in 'cloud'. Really appreciate the help. Utnik you are a star!
