Use included DeviceLink profile to convert ISO Coated v2 ↔ PSO Coated v3 (ECI)
pdfToolbox (8.2 onwards) includes a profile for color conversion and a device link for PSO Coated v3 ICC profile. The third version of Process Standard Offset was introduced in September 2015.
There are two DeviceLink Fixups, which can convert color from "ISO Coated v2 (ECI)" to "PSO Coated v3 (ECI)" or convert in reverse direction "PSO Coated v3 (ECI)" to "ISO Coated v2 (ECI)".
