little cms ColorSpace conversion calculator.


transicc [options] [CGATSINPUT] [CGATSOUTPUT]


lcms is a standalone CMM engine, which deals with the color management. It implements a fast transformation between ICC profiles. transicc is a lcms ColorSpace conversion calculator.



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].


Encoded representation of numbers is not float (Option -w=use 16 bits, Option -x=hexadecimal).


Marks out-of-gamut colors on softproof.

-i profile

Input profile (defaults to sRGB).


Transform by device-link profile.

-m NUM

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


Terse output, intended for pipe usage.

-o profile

Output profile (defaults to sRGB).


Quantize CGATS to 8 bits.


Bounded mode.

-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 verbosity

Verbosity level, (0=None, 1=Normal, 2=High, 3=Very High) [defaults to 1].


Use 16 bits.



You can use '*Lab' and '*xyz' as built-in profiles.
