Sorry about the rant (was: scanning in RGB vs. CMYK: a major issue here!)

I just got scolded by the scanner supervisor of a large printer in the
Boston area where myself and my company helped them implement some color
management policies towards, we think, a very positive result. I was scolded
for lumping all prepress/printers in one "clueless on color management"
basket. My mistake. Naturally, there are those out there doing a good job
and being proactive with their clients in helping them supply good color. I
can tell you this, I believe those that either "get a clue" or hire outside
color consultants and "buy a clue" will see not only an increase in quality
but even an increase in customer loyalty (hard to come by these days). I've
seen this first hand.
I think I was a bit cranky because the last few days I've been working with
a photographic client that is running Corel PhotoPaint 9 on a Win98
platform. Not fun. I'd estimate that PhotoPaint 9 is about a
version-and-a-half behind Photoshop 6 in implementing color management. It's
been a struggle trying to get the results we expect.
So my apologies to those that I may have offended that have a clue and are
helping out their customers. To the REST of you, for shame..... :-)
