Hi all, cinepaint, an open source painting program used by motion
picture studios to retouch images in 35mm films, will in its next
release be able to send 16-bit CMYK data to gimp-print for printing.
(16-bit per channel = 48-bit RGB) The separation is done by littleCMS
(lcms) and an ICC profile. (To obtain good suitable profiles is an weak
point at the moment.) The plug-in is mostly intended to meet high
quality needs.

I loaded two ICC print screenshots up under:
.png> ca. 400kB It shows the cms options for the separation done by

ptions.png> ca. 200kB the standard gimp-print dialog from the used
developers branch.

Many thanks to Robert L. Krawitz from the gimp-print team for its
cooperation and preparation of the library to easy plug-in, Marti Maria
for his easy to work with CMS library and the many options, which I want
furthermore to explore, Robin Rowe for its constant interesst in CMS and
the openess of cinepaints development and William D. Tallman, for his
patiance in testing and bugfinding.
