I think color management support was added in the FP10 code, but I don't have any details on it. I'll see if I can dig anything up..
OK here's the AS3 for colorcorrection. It's off by default in FP10.
I'd say it's pretty tricky though. Requires a browser that supports color correction (which are what? Safari and FireFox 3 at this point?) So it's definitely not going to work for all viewers of your site. But there it is..
Thanks a lot for the reply.
I already tried FP10 the other day, but it has not made any change in how the images are showing. BTW the browser I use is Safari 3 for OS X, so it is color managed.
The way I understand the page you linked me to, it should honour by default the color management ofthe browser the swf runs in. If that's the case something is not working then, because my jpeg viewed directly in the same browser looks way different than wehn viewed through swf.
What I read in the spec is that FP10 only honors the color profile if you turn the api ON in your SWF's. It's off by default. At least that's how I read it. But I read through it pretty quick, so I may have missed something.
Reading through the above link and http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AS3LCR/Flash_10.0/flash/display/Stage.html#colorCorrection I'm not sure that's so clear.
I don't have the bandwidth(or the color-corrected monitors) to dig into this one myself right now. What I'd suggest you do is do some testing with the API in a sample FLA/SWF. IF you then think the colorcorrection isn't doing what it's supposed to then open a support case against Flash CS4 at http://www.adobe.com/support/contact. We'll get it investigated and see what we can find out. If you do that please post the case number back here so I can follow up on it..
Thanks very much. OK if it is only accessible via API, I will not be able to do much, because I am dependant on the component running my slideshow (that being Slideshow Pro). I am sure these guys will take advantage of the new feature sooner or later.
Until then though, where could i find some info in general what does Flash Player do when it shows JPEG images (all tagged with a standard sRGB profile) through swf. what profile does it actually uses? None profile = monitor's profile?
It's really confusing.
