[Scribus] color gamut
Fri Apr 28 13:37:41 CEST 2006
I have changed the ICC profiles with my monitor for RGB and Fogra27 for
CMYK. I have no warning sign anymore. : )
Color management is still mysterious to me... (as well as english
abbreviations ; ) )
So, I really appreciate your help.
Thanks a lot.
