Agreed. As I understand it JPG, PNG and SVG only use the RGB
color model. Printers want CMYK.
Also printer LSI strongly prefers a PDF in X/1-a:2001 format. A good
workaround is to send the cover image in TIFF format which they
also accept for B/W books. TIFF can handle CMYK.
For color interiors LSI only accepts PDF X/1-a:2001 for both the
interior and the cover.
My workaround is to load the sla file into Scribus 1.5.0 and save it
in the preferred PDF X/1-a:2001 format. But not everyone has ready
access to 1.5.0, which must be compiled. A nice feature for
MSWin and OS X users would be a snapshot of 1.5.0 compiled for
each of those platforms. In my experience it works fine.
