Summary0002552: TIFF image does not display on page and prints bright green
DescriptionThe attached TIFF images are not behaving correctly in Scribus.

2006 Show Logo 2.tif does not display on the screen when inserted into a picture frame. View -> Show Images and (Image Frame, Right Click)-> Image Visible are both selected. Also, in Print Preview and when generating a PDF, the image turns bright green.

2006 Show Logo 2 BW.tif (black & white version) behaves the same way.

KagyKornerStore.tif displays on the screen in green and is also green in Print Preview and PDF.

Green Image.pdf shows the exported PDF, default settings, generated by Scribus.
(Printing directly to printer caused a PostScript error.)
Steps To ReproduceCreate an image frame, "Get Image," and you should see the problem.
Additional Information2006 Show Logo 2*.tif: The graphic portion of the image was scanned in using a Brother DCP-8025D Copier/Printer/Scanner using Brother's Control Center 2.0.6 as B&W, 600 dpi TIFF. It was opened in gimp 2.0.6, converted to .xcf and copied into a new grayscale canvas and the text was added. This was then exported as a TIFF, no compression. After converting the TIFF to a GIF the problem went away.

KagyKornerStore.tif: Scanned in, either with the same Brother scanner under 10.2 or with an Epson scanner under Mac OS 8.6. (Too long ago to remember.) Further processed with the GIMP 1. Worked fine last fall in Scribus.

I'm a little rusty on tar/gzip, so if there is a problem with the attached files, please let me know.
TagsNo tags attached.

seems some kind of endian issue. If i open that doc and those images, they export perfectly as greyscale, cmyk or rgb

im not sure if your version enables grayscale PDF export or not. it was added after the 1.3.0 release i think.

Also works fine in Scribus/Aqua from August 25.

As a workaround use Imagemagick (or other app) to convert to PNG.

assigning to Andreas, pending merging his scimage patch.

Note to Carol, we have the fix, but this affects a very complex part of scribus which needs lots of testing before it gets merged into main scribus sources. We plan to resume testing soon.
