I only need to know if the images are cmyk,rgb,lab etc or grayscale. I don't need to process them in any way, only display them. But the user needs to know, so the images can, depending on the colourspace, be further processed, by for example, Photoshop. Specifically, I need to trap RGB images for processsing, while the CMYK images do not need this.
