You can try using my patch for Scribus 1.2.1. (unless you already have)


You should be right to leave you image in sRGB when you drop it into
scribus. Select your ISOCoated as the output profile and it will
correctly convert when you export to PDF.

It doesn't work yet on big endian machines, but this is coming.

Also, don't attempt to resample your images on the pdf export as this is
currently broken (for cmyk output). Resample before putting in Scribus.

(This patch is a work in progress, and you will need to wait for 1.3 for
built in support in Scribus)
