Thank you for your answer. I have activated colormanagement. Actually 
immediatly arrived in Scribus the pictures become milkey. And so they 
continue through the workflow. Looks the same in 3 different pdf-apps; 
(I only downloaded Acrobat Reader because of this problem). And it comes 
milkey bach to me from the printer :-( I downloaded InDesign. Created a 
100x100mm doc with a tiff-picture in both with high printerquality, no 
compression, 1.5 PDF. Scribus gave me a milkey looking file with 16mb, 
whereas the Indesignfile only demanded 1,5mb and looks just wonderfull. 
I understand from Craig Bradney, that this should not happen; only I 
cant figure out, what Im doing wrong. Ole Blente Message: 5 Date: Wed,

Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII I've had similar problems 
myself. Assuming you've activated colour management and the pictures 
look ok in scribus, the problem is most likely to do with a problem with 
the Acrobat reader - have you tried to look at the PDF file with another 
viewer (e.g. xpdf on linux?) For me the solution is to export to 
PDF/X-3, as the pictures look nice regardless of the viewer I use 
although I haven't yet had them printed out on a high quality printer.
