Thanks. In fact, that already occurred to me, and I tried Krita (it's 
quite nice--I have been using GIMP for a long time and don't generally 
care for KDE, but Krita seems well worth exploring).

But apparently just converting to CMYK isn't enough. I did that, but I 
get the same result with the Krita-converted image as with RGB (BTW, I 
am using TIFF images with LZW compression--does that make a difference?) 
Maybe, as Jan said, I need to use the same profiles in GIMP/Krita and 
Scribus. Makes sense, but on my system the two applications don't seem 
to *have* the same set of profiles available. How can I set them up to 
work together?
