thank you both for answers, I understand now the situation...No not trivial, thats wath i mend with using correct colorspace, when the pictures in a LO doc are all the same colorspace, then tranforming to CMYK has a better change to produce better colors.
My friend is historcian and he is not interested in learning any DTP technics – that is quite understandable.
His first pdf exported from OO was flatly rejected as it was in RBG. It is fault or shortcoming of this publishing shop but he will not change it.
Today, I found and tested pstill tool, it converts pdf to CMYK pdf, only colors (in included photos) are somehow shifted, or undersaturated. I had not investigated this issue yet, it might be something trivial …
This was some background, but I have following question:I supose LO is not touching the colorspace precent in the original pictures, we slould have a tool (at least in draw) yo check the colorspace in a picture and to alter this all to the same space.
„Important for this process is using the correct colorspace (sRGB or adobeRGB) is more important and there are we have no tools in LO !“ - are you trying to say, that OO/LibreOffice exports PDFs to wrong RGB type that can not be converted properly into CMYK pdf? If this would be the case it would be quite serious problem...

RGB is a common workflow due to the online use of the same (rgb)
documents. CMYK is "printer" business so they mostly prefer to do the
transfer off a RGB-pdf into a CMYK-pdf.
Important for this process is using the correct colorspace (sRGB or
adobeRGB) is more important and there are we have no tools in LO !
Friend of mine had an issue with openoffice, He was asked to deliver pdf in CMYK colorspace. It is not possible by now AFAIK. But are there any plans or any work being done in this regard? I just wonder, it is not critical issue for me, nor for my friend. He used some Adobe product at the end...
