... and if you plan to rely on that transparency to make into the pdf and then on paper:

- you need to use a pdf version that support transparencies,
- and make sure that your printer (print shop...) honors the transparencies in the pdf.

... because scribus won't flatten the transparencies for you.

A "normal" RGB bitmap file contains colors ranging from black (0,0,0) to white (255,255,255), so there is always a "background".

You need a bitmap format with transparency to get rid of any background.

Wow PatJr, I tried your solution and it worked to place the logo without background.

Thank you very much so far!

But then I couldn't change the color of the logo anymore. The SCRIBUS-effects do not work with PNG files.

My workaround:
I set the background transparent in GIMP and also changed the color of the logo in GIMP and saved the final logo version as a png and then placed it in SCRIBUS. Now the logo is shown without background. It is still poor that I can't change the logo color easily in SCRIBUS.

Scribus should work on that issue imho. It definitely should be able to handle bitmap files.

Ok, I just found out that one can change the color of the bitmap in the effects section (bottom of the pop-up window). Great so far.

But there is still the issue left that the bitmap has a white background (the frame has no background). How can I remove the background of the bitmap (which it doesn't have)? When I use the same bitmap in Indesign, it doesn't have a white background.

Thx PatJr for your help, that was posted while I was writing this.

So what you mean is that Scribus cannot handel a bitmap file for what it is? I have to use a png-file instead?

Can you post up a sample file of an image similar to what you want to work with?

gimp can remove a color and set it to transparent, just save it as a png so the transparency is preserved

scribus has some image manipulation tools
select the image frame then
Item>Image>Image Effects   or Crl-E

I am a quite experienced designer (QuarkXpress and Indesign) and have the same problem as Robert. Unfortunately the only answer didn't solve the issue how to change the color of a bitmap.

A bitmap should also not be displayed with a background color, cause a bitmap is just a map of bits (there is no "black and white", there is only "black"). So how can a bitmap be displayed without a background color (cause it has none) and used what it is for, f. e. for logos to choose a special color and lay it on a photo without having it surrounded by a frame that a bitmap doesn't have?

Your answer will be highly appreciated!
