Color profiles

Top  Previous  Next

If a user inserts RGB images with an embedded input color profile or images using the aRGB profile, they will be automatically converted to sRGB by the Publisher application.
 
Since most computer screens are calibrated to sRGB, our Publisher software also does all image manipulation in sRGB. Therefore, all uploaded PDFs are also sRGB. If your printing machine does aRGB or any other color space, then you need to add an ICC color profile to the Publisher installer accordingly. This output color profile is then applied to the whole page during PDF export.

Note however, that some color profiles may dramatically modify the user’s images and lead to reclamations. They only make sense, if your printing machine really requires an ICC profile to map the sRGB colors of the images to the colors of the printer. Here’s the corresponding section of the Products.xml:

 <Upload>

   <ICCProfile>Demo.icc</ICCProfile>

 </Upload>

 
ICCProfile is the filename of the .ICC profile (sRGB color mapping) which is applied to the whole page (all objects & text) right before upload. The filename on the users PC is relative to:

C:\ProgramData\<publishername>\Organizer\Resources\ColorProfiles1\

We have included a demo Res_ColorProfiles1.zip in the Source\4all.EN folder of the SetupWizard. This file should lie in the source folder of your SetupWizard subshop, along with the masks &  textures resources. The file will be automatically extracted to the above folder during installation or after download from the DataPackURL.

The file also includes a test image called redtruck_GBR.jpg. You can use it to test image applications. If the truck is blue, then the application does not apply the embedded ICC input profile.
