Also this is for CMYK RIPs only, and you would have to convert the image to CMYK; you couldn't apply this kind of stuff to an RGB image. And how do you know which CMY are components of black conversions (Under Color Addition, in this case) versus simply being colors in the image? I don't know of any way to increase the CMY component in four color blacks except through CMYK conversion, in this instance ICC profile conversion, and so the place to do this is through the profile, while the conversion is in process. And the place to control it is in the profile creation or editing software. This would also be more convenient, as you could apply it to RGB images, without having to convert them to CMYK first. C.
