It helps a bit. Let me ask the underlying question. When I print pictures
from Photoshop I tell the printer to "not manage colors" and I let photoshop
adjust the colors appropriately and all works well. Can I do the same in
Scribus ? I'd like color accurate renderings of my pictures which are now
part of scribus documents.
Scribus seems to allow me to edit and render to the screen in a number of
icc profiles (e.g. sRGB, ProPhoto ) but I am having trouble translating that
As a backup I guess I could do everything in sRGB and then let the printer
manage the colors hoping that it all works. Thoughts ?
