Topic: IndexedDeviceCMYK !! What is it?

Hi Folks,

I have been here before with Indexed colorspace problems :).
This time i am stuck at another point.

I have "IndexedDeviceCMYK" images in PDF. I need to create MS Windows BMP from this image.

For "IndexedDeviceRGB" images in PDF i have successfully generated 256 color BMP using the indexed colorspace color map..etc. But for the case of "IndexedDeviceCMYK" i am not sure in what form the color table is or in what form the image data is?.

Do i need to do a CMYK ->RGB conversion on the image data Before creating the BMP? Or should i manipulate the color table?.

Can somebody explain to me how the color table is in the case of IndexedDeviceCMYK and in what form the image data is?. And what are the conversions that i should apply so as to get a valid MS Windows BMP.

Good Day,
