Handle channels > 4 as alpha.
Black point compensation.
-c <0,1,2,3>
Precalculates transform. (0=Off, 1=Normal, 2=Hi-res, 3=LoRes) [defaults to 1]
Embed destination profile.
Marks out-of-gamut colors on softproof.
-h <0,1,2>
Show summary of options and examples.
-i profile
Input profile (defaults to sRGB).
-k <0..400>
Ink-limiting in % (CMYK only).
Transform by device-link profile.
-m <0,1,2,3>
SoftProof intent.
Ignore embedded profile on input.
-p profile
Soft proof profile.
-o profile
Output profile (defaults to sRGB).
-q <0..100>

To color correct from scanner to sRGB:
        tifficc -iscanner.icm in.tif out.tif
To convert from monitor1 to monitor2:
        tifficc -imon1.icm -omon2.icm in.tif out.tif
To make a CMYK separation:
        tifficc -oprinter.icm inrgb.tif outcmyk.tif
To recover sRGB from a CMYK separation:
        tifficc -iprinter.icm incmyk.tif outrgb.tif
To convert from CIELab TIFF to sRGB
        tifficc -iTiffLab8Spac.icm in.tif out.tif
