You cannot use duotone tiffs in =< 

In 134cvs, however Franz has done a wonderful job of adding duo,tri 
and quadtone support with PSD import. I can't remember if tiff 
support was added also.

Moreover, in 134cvs you will be able to apply these effects to *any* 

However, 134cvs is not really usable owing to the major surgery going 
on in the innards of the text layout engine. 

If you have Photoshop, you could flatten it into a CMYK tiff which 
Scribus can use.
