Bingo! Bang on the nail! Very many thanks for this diagnosis. Just found and tried the 'identify -v ' command and it reports 'Colorspace CMYK'. More difficult, at the moment, is to convert it. All variations on -colorspace fail to have any effect (on IM 6.6.3-10), and -profile appears to be unrecognised. On GIMP there is a 'Rearrange colormap' but it's greyed out: presumably the jpg has no colormap. I'll plough on through Google (I have only FreeBSD and Ubuntu machines). -- Christopher Dawkins Garnetts Corner, Braintree Road, Felsted, Dunmow, Essex CM6 3DS c...@e-mjd.com 07816 821659 01371 821076 _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
