Another CMYK question

Postby Marcelo » Sat Jul 02, 2011 3:19 am

Hi INKSCAPE community:

I'm aware that, except for some new development that doesn't seem to be easy to implement yet(*) -for a non-programmer Windows user at least-, Inkscape does not support CMYK.

Now, it displays the CMYK imported bitmap with very annoying colors and cropped. Is this expected as due to the no-support? Could there be any other trouble with the tif image?

1. Importe RGB tif - 2) same CMYK

Thanks in advance.

Yes, Inkscape doesn't show embedded CMYK bitmaps correctly. This is a well-known issue. — news and tutorials on free design software

I don't know if this will help in your case, but there is an extension the provides some limited CMYK support. Please see this topic: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5943
