How Filestage deals with CMYK and RGB

We need to transcode your uploaded PDF files, in order to display them correctly in all browsers on desktop and mobile devices.

As you probably know, color profiles can be a tough nut to crack. Nonetheless, we are able to handle PDF files both with RGB and CMYK color profiles.

How to export files for maximum color accuracy

To ensure maximum color accuracy, we recommend to set up and export PDF files with the “sRGB IEC61966-2.1” color profile.

In case your file has CMYK elements or you are not sure which color profiles are used, you should make sure to convert your files to “sRGB IEC61966-2.1”.
