The ColorSpaceType enumeration may take the following
Device color spaces are device dependent color spaces. This
means that output color will vary depending on the output medium.
For example a DeviceRGB value may look different on one monitor
than it does on another.
Cal, ICC and Lab color spaces are device independent color
spaces. They try to define colors in terms of how they should look
rather than how they should be produced. The goal is to allow
colors to be reproduced accurately on different devices within the
capabilities of the destination device.
The Indexed color space is used for palettized color. Each item
in the palette is defined in terms of a base color space such as
DeviceRGB. Palettes can hold up to 256 entries. The base color
space can be determined using the BaseColorSpaceType property.
Pattern color spaces are special color spaces used for defining
Separation and DeviceN color spaces define colors in terms of
different base colors. Separations specify one color only. DeviceN
color spaces define multiple different colors. For example using a
DeviceN color space you could define an image to be printed using a
combination of Gold, Silver and Black inks.
The None color space represents an unknown or undefined color
space. As such you cannot set this property to be None. Attempting
to do so will result in a default DeviceRGB color space.
More details of these color space types can be found in Section
4.5 of the Adobe PDF Specification.
