i am not certain what all color profiling needs. i have been following lcms mail list and still do not understand it. i have been able to use gimp and templates to make web pages and i have planned to make LaTeX pages, however my time seems to be almost up. carol.gimp.org is down right now -- for whatever reason, but i put a screenshot of a color dialog that has appeared in the new gimp. i am not certain if it meets your needs, but i would be curious to know how it fails to. http://www.gimp.org/~carol/files/colorselector.png the way to get this dialog in your gimp would be via the dialogs menu; it is called "Colors". as you can see from my screenshot, it is dockable. truthfully, if you can print an html template you can easily print a LaTeX document. if you would be interested in seeing my scripts (python) send me a note and i will provide them for you. carol _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
