I'm loading some CMYK images into my repository (5.5 SP05) and trying to use the default thumbnail variant in a web application. For some reason, even though the color space of the thumbnail is set to RGB, it doesn't get converted when the thumbnail is created. This results in a .jpg that is CMYK (and isn't understood by a browser).
If I create a custom variant as .jpg and of the RGB color space, it works fine after generation. Is this a bug? Or is there a way to force the generation of thumbnails? I was trying to not have too many variants in my repository because I was worried about bloating it. Perhaps this shouldn't be a concern, but it still seems as if the thumbnail should get converted to RGB according to the settings in the Console. Any thoughts?
