My installation of GIMP 2.8.10 throws an error message and writes an
empty file when I try to export to PDF. I don't normally do that,
so I never noticed until just now.
Scribus is really the "right tool" for a PDFing job. You can tweak
everything about the PDF file - size of print area, DPI, how
embedded images are saved, vectorization of fonts, etc., via the
document and export settings. I use PNG files for image content
when assembling layouts in Scribus.
Inkscape completes a "trinity" of Free graphics power tools: It's a
vector editor, for tasks like making logos that will be re-used at
many sizes in many formats, labels for offset printing, silk screen
designs, etc. Inkscape can export its native vector files, with or
without embedded bitmaps, to PDF.
