  In order to execute the profiling utilities, you will need:
53
 
54
  - Trolltech's Qt installed (www.trolltech.com)
55
  - Littlecms color engine installed (www.littlecms.com)
56
  - GNU C compiler gcc or equivalent installed. MS VC++ 6 in Windows
57
    systems required in order to use Qt.
58
  - A working make utility. (not required on windows)
59

  Additionaly, in order to calibrate scanner, you will need an IT8 target.

  Installation
65
  ============
66
 
67
  Untar the package (you already did it) and then type 'make'. The

  installed outside distribution directory. You will end with 5 programs:
70
 
71
	- Measurement tool
72
	- Monitor profiler
73
	- Scanner profiler
74
	- Profile checker
75
	- ICC2IT8 program
76
 
77
 
78
  if something goes wrong, try the gcc compiler by using
79
 
80
	make CC=gcc all

 Installing new target reference files
97
 =====================================
98
 If the target vendor gives you a diskette, press the "..." button on right
99
 and select the floppy drive.  You can add references by copying reference

 Final notes
107
 ===========
108
 
109
 Don't expect magic. These profilers does build ICC profiles for your
110
 devices, but is up to the application to use this profiles in order to
111
 accomplish color management. Adobe's PhotoShop, for example does
112
 understand these profiles. Littlecms comes also with a utility for
113
 converting tiff files. If you want to see how can better this system
114
 the color reproduction, convert a scanned image to monitor space
115
 
116
    tifficc /iscanner.icm /omonitor.icm image_in.tif image_out.tif
117
 
118
 Also note that Qt does not support any type of image, TIFF, for example
119
 is not supported. JPEG, BMP are generally available. The list of
120
 supported formats does vary on platform and Qt version.
