jpgicc - little cms ICC profile applier for JPEG.


jpgicc [options] input.jpg output.jpg


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.
-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].
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).
-p profile
Soft proof profile.
-q NUM
Output JPEG quality, (0..100) [defaults to 75].
-s newprofile
Save embedded profile as newprofile.
-t NUM
Rendering intent
0=Perceptual [default] 1=Relative colorimetric 2=Saturation 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
Out-of-gamut marker channel values (r,g,b) [defaults: 128,128,128].


        *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

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