CYMK 240% ink Test jpeg image

I wish to use Writer to make PDF/A files to go to a print company (Ingram Spark) who require all images to be in CYMK format and an ink density of less than 240% (CYMK can go to 400% if all four colours are used at maximum density).

Could Writer full support CYMK jpg images fully please. I can create the correct format images in Photoshop but when I import and place the CYMK image file in jpg format, it displays incorrectly (far too dark). When I export as PDF the incorrect darkness is preserved so that the image prints at well over 240% ink.

MS Word handles the image correctly, but its PDF/A exporter is broken

I have attached a CYMK gradient image for you to test (compare in PShop/Gimp vs OO

Maybe a better match to Issue 3210 - CMYK printing

AFAICT, Issue 18674 is limited to color conversion between RGB and CMYK coordinates.
Comment 3 Andrew Evans 2015-09-25 14:06:33 UTC
Agreed,  Issue 3210  is a better match especially as it mentiond PDF for print.
Is there any plans on the roadmap for CYMK?
