I have concluded that printing from scribus to a locally attached
CMYK PostScript printer always produces a washed out color image
when printing color photos. It's broken and no one can explain why.
Our maintenance man was here yesterday and suggested using the PCL driver.
I tried the PCL driver and both printers print the same file in
full (not washed out) color as expected.
So, my problem is solved. Scribus' behaviour is still unexplained.
