       tificc - little cms ICC profile applier for TIFF.


       tificc [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.  tificc is  a
       little cms ICC profile applier for TIFF.


       -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

       -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
              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.


            *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


       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
