Hi, please correct me if I'm wrong
"If you export "for printer" the resulting PDF will have CMYK colors"
In Adobe InDesign, everytime I insert/link images, I have to make sure that those images are in CMYK. If it's RGB, I have to change the color mode into CMYK using Photoshop.
Since this is my first time using Scribus to produce my client's magazine, I 'm kinda worried if things will go wrong, coz I only have like 5 days to finish this project *sigh*
Last night, I tried exporting a document with text and (originally RGB) images using Export For Printer. When I check the PDF file, Tools > Output Preview > (in the Show dropdown) RGB, and I saw white/blank pages *exactly how I wanted it to be*
So, Scribus does convert those RGB images into CMYK under "export for printer" setting? Also works for RGB text, correct? Please advise
If you have not found it in Scribus you must be doing something wrong.
If you export "for printer" the resulting PDF will have CMYK colors (unless you export to PDF/X-3 which allows for mixed color content).
If you export "for screen/web" the resulting PDF will have RGB colors.
For solid colors, Scribus supports both RGB and CMYK colors.
Images in image frames can be both RGB and CMYK, but will be converted accordingly during PDF export so there is generally no reason to mess with converting images before inserting them. It is usually better to just tag the image with a correct color profile and let Scribus do the color conversion.
