Hello again,

ok that worked. Here's the message that I tried to send before (with the 
wrong sender address):

Yes it's possible with lcms and the 'seperate' plugin by Alastair M. 
Robinson <blackfive [ a t ]>.
He send me a copy of an improved version for gimp 2.x.

I received a message from the developer of the separate plugin, which 
can be found at the bottom of this message. - Thank you Alastair, for 
your reply, and the improved source!

He attached a new version of that plugin with two new checkboxes in the 
"pick the icc profiles" for "preserve pure black" and "overprint pure 

It tries to load these default profiles from the scribus default profile 
folder :


The rendering intend is according to the source perceptual, which is 
often optimal for photographics ( INTENT_PERCEPTUAL, 0); ), but the 
proof appears to me a little bit too yellowish, so that I thought it 
was rendered with an absolute intend, which also simulate the 

As a feature-request I would it find helpfull, if one is able to choose 
also the rendering intend, and to preselect a default rendering intent 
(e.g. perceptive renderin intent as the default intend).

Also a detection of embedded profiles while opening an image, and a 
strategies to convert the image into a working colorspace is highly 
appreciate for an integrated colormanagement of the GIMP. 

But I think this will come if the gimp comes with the new rewritten 
engine Gegl -- Generic Graphical Library (

The binary oft "separate" works now for debian SID, too.

Alastair attached a tarball with the source and the linux-binary, which 
I don't want to send to the list. If someone is interested in the 
source, please, let me know. 

Kind regards

I'd have no objection to someone doing that - the source is GPL after
all - but it's also possible that it will be made an integral part of
the main GIMP distribution, in which case there'd be little point.
There's currently a slight logjam in doing that with the recent
discussion about whether we can get useful colour-management into the
next release - if we do, then the separate plugin will need re-writing
 a little.

Try the attached archive - it compiles here on Mandrake 9.2 and a
current GIMP system.  Hopefully it shouldn't need much, if any,
modification for Debian.  (There are also a couple of new features in
this version that I'll leave you to discover...)

All the best,
Alastair M. Robinson
