Property Value

A ColorManagementEngine to use.


Color management will be applied during transformation of image between color formats in case if all the following conditions are met:

  1. This property is set to LittleCms or AdobeCmm.
  2. The Bitmap which needs to be transformed has a ColorProfile initialized with a correct color profile (e.g. it is embedded color profile loaded from image file, or this property is initialized after the image has been loaded or created).
  3. An output color profile is initialized via the DestinationProfile property.

If you do not need to apply color management during image transformation, set this property to None.

    bitmap.ColorManagement.ColorManagementEngine = ColorManagementEngine.LittleCms;
    //bitmap.ColorManagement.ColorManagementEngine = ColorManagementEngine.AdobeCmm;
