I didnt get an answer to my question (below) a few days ago - (I think 
it got missed in the deluge of messages on this list ;-) . I just 
wondered if anyone could help?

Many, many thanks


I need to send a CMYK PDF to a printers for an advert. Now I'm sure that
the PDF Scribus produces will be CMYK, but if I use the Gimp to create
the images in the first place, ie RGB, and import them, will the
resulting output PDF have CMYK images or not?

If I produce vector work from Inkscape and import as a SVG, I think that
produces CMYK images. Is this correct ?

I had a look but couldn't find these notes in the docs or the wiki.

I wont be using ICC profiles, as colour management is not so much of a

I'm using Scribus and Inkscape 0.44, gimp 2.2.11
