Current CVS supports raster graphics with the following limitations:

* imagemask doesn't work correctly
* clip path is ignored
* creates one file for each bitmap, which can be a lot

I have a problem with import eps(from corel draw 9) file with foto into scribus. I can't import eps postscript level 1 but post script level 2 and 3 hava changed position of foto and tekst. When I import eps without foto is rather good. When i import eps into image box and export to pdf i see raster image :(

Misiek: according to plinnell, your EPS files are broken/non conformant, see also the 3 URL's below:

Quoting from my IRC chat with plinnell:
"all 3 of those files fail to open in Ghostscript or GSview, along with Photoshop.. so I suspect the EPS is being exported with some settings which are not compatible with other applications... IMO all 3 are broken EPs files which show bugs in exporting"

quoting fschmid:
"just tested the 3 Corel EPS files here... All versions of Ghostscript available refuse to display them. I can't even get the included screen previews. The file offsets in the DOS header are totally wrong and even extracting the TIFF previews with an HexEditor doesn't work as these TIFF's are borked either."
