Conversions with ICC Color Profiles

PDF2IMG will honor calibrated colorspaces in PDF files, if output color management is in effect. The product will also write target ICC profiles to the TIF, JPG, PNG, or BMP output files.

Color management can be suppressed using either the Color Management Module nocmm command line call or the pdf2img_set_colormanagement API call.

For non-calibrated spaces, PDF2IMG will use the defaults provided by the Adobe PDF Library for conversions, depending on the colorspace.
