<h4>Activating Color Management</h4>
<p>The color management function needs the following to be installed to be active and usable:</p>
<ul><li>Littlecms libraries installed and Scribus compiled with lcms support. You can tell by looking at <strong>Help > About Scribus</strong> and looking for C-C-T. The first C means Scribus is compiled with littlecms support. </li>
<li>You need a <strong>minimum</strong> of 1 RGB and 1 CMYK profile. In practical terms, you need more. One sRGB for most RGB colors and devices. One for your monitor which is created with monitor profiling tools. Several CMYK profiles for printing. Some CMYK profiles are known as "press-standards", in that they represent common commercial print standards used in North America and Europe. The best bet is to download the "Windows" version of the Adobe ICC profile package and unzip it into a directory like $home/profiles. Then add this directory in your Scribus preferences. You can also download freely distributable profiles from the <a href="http://www.scribus.org.uk/modules.php?op=modload&name=Downloads&file=index&req=viewdownload&cid=16">ICC downloads</a> section on <a href="http://www.scribus.net">www.scribus.net</a> </li>
<li>You need a <strong>minimum</strong> of 1 RGB and 1 CMYK profile. Scribus 1.2.3+ provides two basic profiles to ensure CMS can be enabled immediately. In practical terms, you need more. One sRGB for most RGB colors and one for each color device. One for your monitor which is created with monitor profiling tools. Several CMYK profiles for printing. Some CMYK profiles are known as "press-standards", in that they represent common commercial print standards used in North America and Europe. The best bet is to download the "Windows" version of the Adobe ICC profile package and unzip it into a directory like $home/.colors/icc. You can also download freely distributable profiles from the <a href="http://www.scribus.org.uk/modules.php?op=modload&name=Downloads&file=index&req=viewdownload&cid=16">ICC downloads</a> section on <a href="http://www.scribus.net">www.scribus.net</a> </li>
<li>As of Scribus 1.2.3, by default on Linux, Scribus will look in:
<pre>$home/.color/icc</pre> and <pre>/usr/share/color/icc/</pre>
for both personal icc profiles or system wide ones. There is a small, but growing collection of freely available icc profiles for download on <a href="http://www.scribus.net">www.scribus.net</a>. Look in the Downloads > ICC section. Scribus on Windows or MacOSX will look in the default system directories. Earlier versions of Scribus will look in the directory specified in preferences.</li>
<li>If you are new to color management, please look over the links and documentation on color management listed on www.scribus.net. These explain the theory and concepts far better than I could here.</li></ul>
<h4>Overview</h4>
<p>The objective of a color management system is to reduce the differences between the on-screen colors and final printing, as well as showing colors which are out of gamut, beyond the color range of your selected printer. The caveat is you need to provide a profile of the printer and one for your monitor which is reasonably accurate. For users of other applications, the default settings and descriptions can be quite confusing to new users. Without prior knowledge of the terminology, it is <strong>very</strong> easy to choose the wrong settings. This can often makes images look worse on screen or print. Then, the first time user simply says enough and disables color management.</p>
