NConvert & Color Spaces

Post by justinjtownsend »

I am converting tiff files (with the sRGB colorspace) to thumbnail size. To verify the color space of the thumbnail I'm looking in Photoshop. Photoshop says no color space is associated.

I am using the -keepcspace parameter. I have got it to work with *.jpeg files. What's the reason it doesn't work with the tiff format?

Thanks alot.

Currently only jpeg can be saved in CMYK

I tried to convert an image from rgb to cmyk using -ctype option,
I tried on a tiff and, after I saw your last remark, on a jpeg, in the second case it created 2 copies of the jpeg, but in the properties box of these new images(in xnview), the color range is still RGB is it normal of am I wrong somewhere?

ctype is only used for RAW format
