Output node tag definitions

A formal description of all available tags in the XML job ticket Output node. If the default value for a tag is “channel value”, this means that if the tag is not in the jobticket, the value is taken from the channel that processes the jobticket. If the tag is in the jobticket, the value of it overwrites the channel setting.

BWProfileActive (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

If true, the grayscale ICC profile as defined in “BWProfile” is applied on grayscale images only, or to convert images to grayscale (see “Apply” and “UseICCProfile” tags in the GrayscaleConversion node tag definitions)

If the extension is not specified, it will be added according to the “FileFormat”.
