|0006205||Scribus||Graphics / Image Frames||public||2007-09-07 21:30||2017-01-20 22:10|
|Platform||MacBook Pro||OS||Gentoo Linux||OS Version||x86/2006.1|
|Fixed in Version||1.5.3.svn|
|Summary||0006205: Update Image ignores change of resolution in image|
|Description||If I import a picture into an image frame and later change the resolution of the picture in an external program (e.g. The GIMP), the "Update Image" command in the picture frame context menu ignores the change.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1) Start Scribus|
2) Draw an image frame and import a picture (I am using pictures in PNG format)
3) Do not close Scribus
4) Open the picture in The GIMP, select Image->Scale Image and change the resolution of the picture and save.
4) Switch to Scribus, right click on the image frame and select "Update Image".
The size of the image does not change...
|Additional Information||Scribus reports version 126.96.36.199 not 188.8.131.52cvs, but I can't select this version in the combobox above.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||What are the settings you use for images in the properties palette?|
Free Scaling on
X-Pos 0.0 cm
Y-Pos 0.0 cm
Actual X-DPI: 350.0
Actual Y-DPI: 350.0
(DPI setting is set when I import the image with "Get Image")
X-Scale and Y-Scale linked
Scale to Frame Size: off
Proportional: on (greyed, cannot be changed)
>>Free Scaling on
This means you set the scaling. Why do you expect Scribus to update if the external image has been rescaled? It makes no sense.
Because the scale does change when I import another image with a different scaling into that frame. So I was not aware of that option.
Anyway, I am trying to uncheck the "Free Scaling" check box as you suggest, however it remains on, whatever I do.
||If you want to rescale the image to the new dimensions, right click and use "Scale frame to image".|
I guess, some more explanation is required. I can set two modes in the image properties palette:
1) "Free Scaling" - according to the on-screen help "Allow the image to be a different size to the frame"
2) "Scale to Frame Size"
I don't want 2); I want 1) i.e. to allow the image to be different size to the frame, but I do not want to set a scale different from the one stored in the image.
A reasonable behaviour for the "Update Image" function would be to reset the scale the image has in scribus to the scale stored in the image, but only in the case when the size or the DPI setting stored in the image was changed compared to the scale it had when it was originally imported. This would, however, require to store the original scale and size somewhere in the scribus document.
||guys, what's the verdict on this?|
fixed in 1.5.3svn thanks to william in 0008753
