Regis Rampnoux recently made a plug-in which can be found at
<http://registry.gimp.org/plugin?id=1557>. I am not sure I entirely
understand what it does, but it looks like it applies the curve
directly, rather than converting it to a GIMP curve first.
I seem to remember he was working on another plug-in for Photoshop
I'd really like to see somebody do this as a front end to the
Gimp-Print plugin (perhaps with some of the core incorporated into the
Gimp-print core). I'll be happy to accept someone who wants to work
on this onto the Gimp-print project.
With the current 8 bit only GIMP, this really needs to happen at the
printing stage. Applying this kind of transform to 8-bit data means
losing a lot of information; in 16 bits (which Gimp-print uses
internally), this isn't a problem. Gimp-print has a 16-bit raw CMYK
printing mode that's ideal for this kind of thing.
