There are no free ICC Profiles? Thats wrong!

Much better than the Adobe Profiles, are these from ECI (European Color Initiative) - not only that they give away the best universal RGB profile freely (ECI-RGB v1.0) there are also very good CMYK profiles for offset printing (ECI Offset 2004)!

Look here: <A HREF="http://www.eci.org/eci/en/060_downloads.php" title="eci.org">http://www.eci.org/eci/en/060_downloads.php</a eci.org>

Color Management should be more supported - they also should start a good photo editing programm. Sorry, but GIMP hat the most unusuable UI I've ever seen! (thats not about the toolkit *g*)

They should start to implement the great features of this software in a nice UI + including ICC profiles.

Perhaps a linux box soon with such a program, scribus, and inkscape would be a alternative for me. I am a media designer, and a linux fan<nobr> <wbr></nobr>;o)
