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

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?
« Last post by Osgboy on September 18, 2022, 09:13:55 pm »
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.

You should try Tex or LaTex with a code editor, they offer what you are looking for.

Ah, ok, thanks a lot for the version clarification. I really can't remember all the different kinky names for OSX and macOS. ;D

So why didn't you keep your FrameMaker? License too expensive and Sccribus for free?

Scribus is an Open Source application, so you had a chance to test it. Now you notice that you've expected more features and start to complain — why? You can delete it and continue using FrameMaker.

BTW, I grew up with hand lead type setting. We wrote the story and then set the type. We learned to estimate the column lengths based on column width and letter types and point sizes, used a type ruler, etc. and of course had to reset the letter types if the editor (the person) wanted a modification. So, at least for me, Scribus resembles the old-fashioned, very logical and bulletproof way of designing printed material. An even more elegant way to design printed material is Tex or LaTex, where you write your story and then use some sort of markup language to specify every single parameter of your document. Later we learned how to use the Linotype Hell photo type setting and laser phototypesetting, until the personal computer age with lousy software took over.

OK, this was just a brief look back into recent history, when there was nothing like »point and click« or »copy and paste«.

Misleading logotype? What about the childish google logotype, pretending it's a nice and colorful kid's company like the children of Bullerby, but in fact is the most brutal advertising company on earth? Want to send your complaint to google as well?

Monterey is the latest version of macos.

Thanks for the link to the bug reporter. Scribus does not appear to have the features I am looking for in writing books, but if I do find a use for it, I might report the bugs I am finding.
