Summary0014775: Photoshop generated greyscale tif does not import into 1.5.2 image frame
DescriptionI have downloaded both 1.4.6 and 1.5.2 and am a newbe getting going with Scribus.
My first picture frame tried importing a greyscale tif into 1.5.2 and the frame went blank. (crossed line disappeared)
Then tried reproducing same error with 1.4.6 which successfully imported the same greyscale image.
Then tried another greyscale image in 1.5.2 (converted from CMYK tif to greyscale with Photoshop) and that too did not import.
Then decided to use the same colour tif but this time convert to greyscale with Irfanview and image import to 1.5.2 was successful.
Thus seems on my system this is a problem with the photoshop translator into greyscale.
Has this been reported elsewhere and can this be resolved?
No issues with the original colour images in either version of Scribus.
TagsNo tags attached.

Christoph_s, apologies for the delay, I mistakenly assumed that Mantis issue tracker notifies one by email of activities. I have uploaded the original tif, Photoshop Greyscale and Irfanview greyscale with the photoshop greyscale being the problematic one in 1.5.2 import into picture frame.

For information I am also uploading the Scribus example file demonstrating the problem with the import of PS generated greyscale.

no problem with macOS 10.11.6 (scribus 1.5.2 and 1.5.3) – all the images are visible.
