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



Black point compensation.

-d NUM

Observer adaptation state (abs.col. only), (0..1.0, float value) [defaults to 0.0].


Embed destination profile.


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).

-l link

TODO: explain this option.

-m NUM

SoftProof intent (0,1,2,3) [defaults to 0].


Ignore embedded profile.

-o profile

Output profile (defaults to sRGB).

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


To color correct from scanner to sRGB:
	jpgicc -iscanner.icm in.jpg out.jpg

To convert from monitor1 to monitor2:
	jpgicc -imon1.icm -omon2.icm in.jpg out.jpg

To make a CMYK separation:
	jpgicc -oprinter.icm inrgb.jpg outcmyk.jpg

To recover sRGB from a CMYK separation:
	jpgicc -iprinter.icm incmyk.jpg outrgb.jpg

To convert from CIELab ITU/Fax JPEG to sRGB
	jpgicc -iitufax.icm in.jpg out.jpg
