Handling of images with CMYK color support in EngageOne Designer\Generate

Product Feature: EngageOne® Designer
 
When using an RGB PNG file in the design, the color match in the AFP output is not identical. To rectify this, it is recommended that a full CMYK TIFF image is obtained from the supplier, with embedded ICC profiles. During the publish a job, ensure that the "Color management (Create CMR for embedded ICC profile)" option is checked.

Overview of handling of RGB/CMYK Image output:

PDF:
All image types other than JPEG will be converted to a BMP (i.e.RGB). using anything other than a CMYK JPEG in design will convert it to an RGB BMP in the PDF output regardless of whether the PDF output device is set to RGB or CMYK.
Select the “Preserve color space” option in the Output Device configuration. This option allows JPEG images to be included directly in the PDF output and will convert TIFF or EPS images to JPEG. This Preserve color space option may be important if the images used by application have been created with a CMYK color space rather than RGB.

AFP:
If a CMYK Tiff has been used in the design for AFP output, then for the absolute color integrity, use the option "CMYK Tiff with embedded color profile". This will render correctly only when it is printed on the machine from which the color profile comes.

If using an external keyed image in the template, then the FS45 would be passed directly through to the AFP output.
