The sun is up and I am fiddling. The idea is to have the edge of
one picture dissolve into the edge of another. That means the
topmost picture has to fade to transparency the the point of
overlap. Scribus 1.3.5 has some intriguing but head-scratching
features. There is for example a blend mode on the Color
properties of an image or a shape but it is stuck on "Normal".
The indicators for a gradient e.g. black to white are there but they
have no effect on an image. They only work on a shape.
And in the layers dialogue there are two new and at the moment
perplexing features. There is a blend mode that has choices but it
has the popup notation "Works only with PDF 1.4." And there is an
opacity selection with the notation "works only in pdf 1.4 and svg."
Apparently these notations only refer to final output limitations.
Anyhow there may be some possibilities for blending images by
blending layers but adapting this for an edge blend will be
