|0013740||Scribus||Import / Export||public||2016-02-14 22:05||2016-12-08 22:04|
|Target Version||1.5.4||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0013740: Images inserted as *.xcf exported with black instead of transparency to PDF|
|Description||Images edited with Gimp that have transparency work fine in the UI (you see the background through the transparent parts), work fine when exporting as images, but get exported with a solid black background when exporting to PDF.|
i have tried PDF 1.4, 1.5, and 1.6, all to the same effect.
Btw, this also happens on Scribus 1.5.0 (scribus-ng) besides this nightly 1.5.1svn that I report it to.
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Create an XCF file with Gimp, that contains transparency.|
2. Insert that image as XCF into a Scribus document.
3. Export the doc in PDF.
the exported content has black as the transparent background. when exported as image, it works fine as expected.
I used Kubuntu 15.10, which has Gimp 2.8 14 and Okular 0.23.2. Chromium Version 48.0.2564.82 Ubuntu 15.10 (64-bit) does render it just the same.
|Additional Information||I have prepared the sample images and a doc to help reproduce. See the files here:|
In that dir the sample.sla includes both *.png and *.xcf image. The sample.pdf illustrates what I mean.
||What PDF version are you exporting with ?|
I added the export of PDF 1.3, 1.4 and 1.5 to the sample directory.
Only 1.3 gives correct results.
||Yea.. can confirm weirdness. Thanks for the report @telefleuries.|
||Seems to be a GraphicsMagick bug as calling gm convert on the .xcf gives the same weired result.|
||I couldn't find an open bug on this issue upstream|
