color in Acrobat Reader

Postby ltxsun » Sun Aug 08, 2010 11:14 pm

Acrobat Reader cannot display the color correctly: for example, blue, specified in tikz as rgb(0,0,1), is shown as (55,83,165) by the Photoshop eyedropper. but it can be displayed correctly on Adobe Illustrator, Sumatra PDF, TeXworks previewer.

I found some related posts. However, I need to use Acrobat Reader for an entire pdf presentation, so that using GIMP to convert color in png images is not an option.

I would guess it is some color space issue. but I tried all settings in Acrobat reader -- color management, none has worked.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

There are many other PDF viewers that master to run a presentation.

I found that my problem is due to Acrobat Reader's handling of transparency in that it uses CMYK mode to render RGB colors.

p.s. to localghost, I cannot edit the original post to add a check mark.
