Subject Re: CMYK images

Hi Tilman,

Thanx for the reaction. Our printing company depends in CMYK colors to make offset prints.
We create letters for clients who (of course) are very keen on company (logo) colors printed
in the right tones. These are always delivered to us in InDesign/Illustrator/... using CMYK

Converting images to a specific format is no problem for us, but we need a way of preserving
CMYK colour information in the PDF. When exporting PDF's using InDesign this information is
preserved. How would we go about using PDFBox?

We tried twelvemonkeys, but their JPG codec either converts CMYK to RGB or creates an unusable
image format.

The attached image is a CMYK color based JPEG we should be able to include as is.

How would we go about?

We're generating PDF's with PDFBox 2.0.4 for printing.
The printing company expects all images embedded in CMYK color mode.
We tried to load JPG and TIFF files but without success. Of course all works as expected with
files in RGB mode.
Is this possible, or soon to be supported within PDFBox?

It's not possible and nothing is planned. Are you able to submit CMYK images in a way that
we can get the raster values?

Or can you share a few CMYK image files? Maybe twelvemonkeys is able to read them as raster.
