Any port in a storm. I can convert from RGB to CMYK easily using
Imagemagick's convert program but that converts everything to a
bitmap. Not wonderful for text. I can convert to the near-
mandatory pdf x/1-a:2001 format (more and more USA digital
printers are specifying it) using the shareware progam
Pstill but that costs money and I don't know what if anything it
does to color models. I can import into Scribus and export, which
handles color models but doesn't (yet) offer the PDF X/1-a format.
One of the goals of ghostscript is or was to make Acrobat Distiller
unnecessary for most of us. Addressing color model and pdf
format questions mentioned above would be a big step toward
"Create Book Covers with Scribus"
