Subject: CMYK JPGs are converted to RGB, messing with colors
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 400b
When I read a JPG with CMYK color space, it seems to be converted to RGB automatically when being written (regardless of the output format), leading to colors to be off. I can't find a way to change this behavior or set the color space to CMYK explicitly when writing. To reproduce, save the attached sample JPG and run: perl -MImager -e 'Imager->new(file => "orig.jpg")->write(file => "copy.jpg")'

Hi Jonas, Unfortunately this isn't likely to change soon. Imager only supports RGB and greyscale images internally, so any images need to be converted to one of those colourspaces. Right now Imager uses a very primitive CMYK to RGB conversion, I plan to change that, but it requires a lot of pre-requisite work which won't be happening quickly. Tony
