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
*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
