       tifficc - little cms ICC profile applier for TIFF.


       tifficc [options] input.tif output.tif


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


       -a     Handle channels > 4 as alpha.

       -b     Black point compensation.

       -c <0,1,2,3>
              Precalculates  transform.  (0=Off,  1=Normal, 2=Hi-res, 3=LoRes)
              [defaults to 1]

       -e     Embed destination profile.

       -g     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).

       -l profile
              Transform by device-link profile.

       -m <0,1,2,3>
              SoftProof intent.

       -n     Ignore embedded profile on input.

       -p profile
              Soft proof profile.

       -o profile
              Output profile (defaults to sRGB).

       -s profile
              Save embedded profile as <new profile>

       -t <0,1,2,3>
              Intent (0=Perceptual, 1=Colorimetric, 2=Saturation, 3=Absolute).

       -v     Verbose.

       -w     Wide output (generates 16 bps tiff).

       You can also use following builtins
              *Lab  -  CIE  Lab  D50 based *XYZ - XYZ *adobe1998RBB - AdobeRGB
              *colormatchrgb - ColorMatch RGB *applergb - Apple RGB


       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
