[Scribus] Question regarding color management
Fri Jul 14 08:02:00 CEST 2006
I am working with Scribus 1.2.3 on Mac OS X and really love this
program. As I am not a DTP expert I have tried to understand the
principles of color management, but I am still confused.
My document looks fine on the monitor. Color Management is activated
using Adobe RGB (1998) for pictures, solid colors and monitor. For the
printer I am using Europe ISO Coated FOGRA27, which I hope is fine for
printing in Europe. Once I active the option "Simulate Printer on the
Screen" all colors shift and look pale.
When I am exporting the PDF, once in RBG and once in CMYK, I can see a
similar color difference between those files on the screen using my PDF
viewer. What kind of file should I forward to the printing company?
Does this color difference indicate, that something is going wrong and
my print will not work?
Thank you for any help you can give me.
