I recognize that Gimp is web-centric, and that enhanced
prepress capabilities are somewhere in the future. However
some of us do use Gimp for images ending up on the printed
page. And critics of Gimp and Open Source software in
general jump on prepress issues as a point of criticism.
In addition to CMYK the issue of ICC color profiles has been
raised. Photoshop offers several profiles for e.g., coated
paper, uncoated paper and so on. It is clumsy to develop in
Gimp, and then transfer to Photoshop just for profiling.
What are the prospects of doing something in this area? Is
any of it on the agenda?
