[Scribus] Big problem with RGB-image

Hi Jan

I am a new Scribus user - so, list's expert users, pardon me if I utter 
anything incorrect! AFAIU, if Scribus embeds an ICC profile in your document 
then the printer device correctly understands/translates the RGB color to an 
equivalent CMYK one. I read in the docs that compression is not at all 
desirable when it comes to printing. Further, I also read in the 
documentation that JPEG is not a very good file format when it comes to 
printing and that TIFF is the most recommended, doesn't compress 
unnecessarily, and that PNG format is good for taking screenshots (if you 
don't scale screenshots - or don't re-sample when scaling the screenshots). 
I have also read the caliberating your monitor and printer is also very 
important for good results. Am I wrong when I say that having the target 
printer device's profile is very help? I did read something like somewhere 
in the docs but would anyone on the list, please, explain the logic behind 
it once again (i.e. having the target printer's profile)?

Best regards
