    Profile format specs

    Level 1
      The profiles created with the DNG profiler, do these conform to some standard? Are the specs of these profiles available somewhere? In other words: can third parties also create custom profiles for the Adobe raw converters?

          Yes, the spec is here:

          http://www.adobe.com/products/dng/pdfs/dng_spec.pdf

          Also get the DNG SDK, which has a complete reference implementation of the color profiles (you can use the code, just be sure to read the license terms):

          http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/dng/dng_sdk.html

          And here is some sample code to get you started:

          And yes, third parties are welcome to develop DNG color profiles, as well as build software tools to build DNG color profiles.
