The Adobe Color Mangement Module (CMM) is now available on Adobe Labs for community review and testing. So, what is this thing? In a nutshell, it’s the color converter part of the Adobe Color Engine (ACE), transformed into a library that can be used by non-Adobe apps. The upshot is that you can use a single color management engine across your workflow, enabling more consistent display and output of colors.
ACE is built into Adobe products and therefore can’t be used by non-Adobe products (Quark, etc.). This project takes a chunk of ACE (the color conversion engine) and packages it for use by applications that support external color management modules (using ColorSync on the Mac OS and ICM2/WCS on Windows). In-house color ninja Peter Constable adds, "Adobe hopes users will find the Adobe CMM a useful tool to
enable consistent, reliable, and accurate color in all parts of their color
If the CMM sounds useful to you, please grab a copy, kick the tires, and let us know what you think. A dedicated discussion forum should pop up on Labs in another two weeks.
