Patrick, ok I've done that now.  It  is here
All the dark trees/shrubs have big white blotches on the print.  Of course,
the problem is only on the print, not on the digital file.
But as I said, when I print it via  odt (OO0 text document) it prints ok.
(But I want gallery quality, so can't just say, well,
ok then, use OO.)
