ICC Technical Note 02-2001 Creating ICC profiles from PDF color spaces
Last updated: February 2001 (v1.0)
Specification covered by this Technical Note: ICC.1 (v4)
Adobe Acrobat 5 creates ICC profiles from PDF color spaces as follows:
- The CalRGB colorant values are chromatically adjusted using a Bradford
chromatic adaptation matrix transforming from the white point of the PDF
color space to D50. No other chromatic adaptation is done.
- The MediaWhitePoint tag is set to the white point of the PDF color
- The MediaBlackPoint tag is set to the black point of the PDF color
All other mandatory tags are created in obvious ways following the ICC
specification of 1998.
