a few years ago, i've created a plugin that does it:

https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-plugin-applyStyle

- you need to compile scribus yourself and then add this plugin in the source code.
- i have not tested it in a while, so i'm not sure it still compiles with the current code.
- it's a bit rough but, if you get it to compile, it should work.

Vector graphics and postscript / Re: SVG images prints "rasterized" with jagged edges

The graphics are smooth in the pdf, so I guess that means I have to ask the printshop what went wrong. We have been meaning to change printshop anyway, I just wanted to make sure the problem didn't originate from my end.

Thanks for helping me narrow down the source of the problem!

Oh I was trying to export as an image. I see there's a resolution option there.

Click the image.
Press the F3 key (Image Properties)
Check the settings. If the Actual DPI is above 300 dpi, everything is ok.
Now do a Preview (Menu -> View -> Preview or the eye below the menu.
Then set the View from Normal to High (see attachment)
It might take a while to re-render the image, but it should be sharp on screen.
In the Preferences pane you can change the view to always HIGH as well.
Remember to set the export parameters to a minimum of 300 dpi — Scribus will scale the image accordingly for the PDF.

You will never lose any resolution, unless you specify 96 dpi in the PDF output. Scribus is a professional tool and not a gimmick for Internet gimmicks.

Somewhat pixelated  :-X

How does the corresponding PDF/X-4 look — does it display the same pixelation/rasterize graphic? If not (smooth lines in the graphic), the RIP (Raster Image Processor) of the printshop does have a problem. If yes, something in the import went wrong or the svg does have some settings which PDF/X-4 doesn't support.

Beginner Talk / Poor image quality?

I'm learning how to use Scribus as an alternative to Canva, which I had been using for a couple years, but I can't figure out why the image quality is so poor. The images I'm using are 4032x3024 pixels, but when I paste them in at 10% size they look extremely pixelated and ugly. If I do the same thing on Canva, the image quality is preserved regardless of what scaling factor I use. I also tried importing a logo as an eps file at300% size but that also appears blurry and pixelated. Is there a way for me to resize images in Scribus without losing resolution?

Thanks for replying!

The vector graphics looks fine in scribus, but prints jagged or kind of "rasterized". My svg has no text, it's just a vector graphic.
I don't have a printer, the pdf (a newspaper) was printed by a printshop, so I can't test your graphics, unfortunately.

I have attached the svg and a picture, albeit a bad one, of the printed result.

OK, is there is bitmap behind the vector graphic or on top of it? Are there any fonts embedded (i.e. some characters, words)?

When you open the SVG with an associated software (Inkscape, PhotoLine?), will it print flawlessly? If not, the SVG export format might not be compatible for printing.

If the file contains fonts, you might try to re-open the SVG and convert text to curves before you save and import it again.

If you can post the SVG, we could try it in different Scribus environments to check if the problem persists.

I've attached a clean SVG, which you might place in Scribus and check the PDF.

Yes I mean vector graphics. There is no bitmap, it is purely vector graphics.

You wrote »images«. Do you mean images or graphics, i.e. vector graphics? If there is a bitmap in a vector graphic, everything will be rasterized when generating the PDF.
