Dear Peter,

thank you for your quick reply. So Scribus does not yet leave images as they 
are but converts them on export to PDF/X-3 silently into RGB. Not knowing 
this can be quite a pitfall, because the above mentioned export options 
suggested to me that the image gets into the PDF with its own profile, as it 
is also possible with PDF/X-3.

This will be quite good! Thank you again

Yours sincerely
