Subject Re: CMYK from Batik
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2006 16:03:39 GMT
Thanks for your answer Jeremias,

Can anyone tell me how to create a CMYK JPEG with the JPEGTranscoder.
I believe that this involves the use of  <color-profile> tag with a 
reference to an .icm file, but an example of both java and suitable svg 
source would help greatly.
