tificc(1) little cms ICC profile applier for TIFF.

SYNOPSIS

tificc [options] input.tif output.tif

DESCRIPTION

lcms is a standalone CMM engine, which deals with the color management. It implements a fast transformation between ICC profiles. tificc is a little cms ICC profile applier for TIFF.

OPTIONS

-a
Handle channels > 4 as alpha.
-b
Black point compensation.
-c NUM
Precalculates transform (0=Off, 1=Normal, 2=Hi-res, 3=LoRes) [defaults to 1].
-d NUM
Observer adaptation state (abs.col. only), (0..1.0, float value) [defaults to 0.0].
-e
Embed destination profile.
-g
Marks out-of-gamut colors on softproof.
-h NUM
Show summary of options and examples (0=help, 1=Examples, 2=Built-in profiles, 3=Contact information)
-i profile
Input profile (defaults to sRGB).
-k inklimit
Ink-limiting in % (CMYK only), (0..400.0, float value) [default 400.0].
-l profile
Transform by device-link profile.
-m TODO: check if values outside 0..3 are possible
SoftProof intent [defaults to 0].
-n
Ignore embedded profile on input.
-o profile
Output profile (defaults to sRGB).
-p profile
Soft proof profile.
-s newprofile
Save embedded profile as newprofile.
-t NUM
Rendering intent
0=Perceptual [default] 1=Relative colorimetric 2=Saturation 3=Absolute colorimetric 10=Perceptual preserving black ink 11=Relative colorimetric preserving black ink 12=Saturation preserving black ink 13=Perceptual preserving black plane 14=Relative colorimetric preserving black plane 15=Saturation preserving black plane
-v
Verbose.
-w NUM
Output depth (8, 16 or 32). Use 32 for floating-point.

BUILT-IN PROFILES

        *Lab2  -- D50-based v2 CIEL*a*b
        *Lab4  -- D50-based v4 CIEL*a*b
        *Lab   -- D50-based v4 CIEL*a*b
        *XYZ   -- CIE XYZ (PCS)
        *sRGB  -- sRGB color space
        *Gray22 - Monochrome of Gamma 2.2
        *Gray30 - Monochrome of Gamma 3.0
        *null   - Monochrome black for all input
        *Lin2222- CMYK linearization of gamma 2.2 on each channel

EXAMPLES

To color correct from scanner to sRGB:
        tificc -iscanner.icm in.tif out.tif
To convert from monitor1 to monitor2:
        tificc -imon1.icm -omon2.icm in.tif out.tif
To make a CMYK separation:
        tificc -oprinter.icm inrgb.tif outcmyk.tif
To recover sRGB from a CMYK separation:
        tificc -iprinter.icm incmyk.tif outrgb.tif
To convert from CIELab TIFF to sRGB
        tificc -i*Lab in.tif out.tif
