I just saw your next message but will ask the questions here

What sort of pictures are they, tiff,png etc.

Under what circumstances do they look 'right'. For example, I take it they look allright in native scribus, but what about Gimp or some other image viewing program

Have you made a monitor profile with lprof? (That might be a red herring)

What does it look line in Acrobat-5.0.8, (I ask that because I get different colors from different Acrobats)

All this colour stuff is a black art!
