    Colors shift when a PDF file contains transparent image

    isdrw

      Hello,

       

      I tried to programatically set a soft mask to an image by using the Addobe PDF Library, in order to make part of the image transparent. I also have a PDF file that was created in the same way but contains the same image as not transparent. The image color space is RGB.

       

      When I open two files in Adobe Reader 9.2.0 the colors are not the same. The colors in the file which contains the transparent image are a bit darker. The colors are different not only inside the image box, but in all page area. I also tried to open the same file in GSView and there was no such problem.

      Can I fix this by changing the Adobe reader preferences, or this is a problem in the code that genereates the PDF?

       

      If this is not the correct forum to ask this question, please direct me to the correct forum

       

      Thanks
