This is the 2nd. public release the profilers. It has not been
tested extensively, so is possible some bugs still arises.
If so, sorry for the inconvenience, and please feel free to submit
any suggestion/solution (if you can find it) at:
 
marti@littlecms.com
 
The main site for the package is located at
 
http://www.littlecms.com
or
http://www.lcms.coloraid.de
 
 
 
Looking forward the lcms project would grow in future, I will
welcome any contribution/optimization/enhancement.
 
Enjoy!
 
 
Requeriments
============
 
In order to execute the profiling utilities, you will need:
 
- Trolltech's Qt installed (www.trolltech.com)
- Littlecms color engine installed (www.littlecms.com)
- GNU C compiler gcc or equivalent installed. MS VC++ 6 in Windows
systems required in order to use Qt.
- A working make utility. (not required on windows)
 
Additionaly, in order to calibrate scanner, you will need an IT8 target.
 
 
Installation
============
 
Untar the package (you already did it) and then type 'make'. The
binaries will be placed on root of distribution. There are no files
installed outside distribution directory. You will end with 5 programs:
 
- Measurement tool
- Monitor profiler
- Scanner profiler
- Profile checker
- ICC2IT8 program
 
 
if something goes wrong, try the gcc compiler by using
 
make CC=gcc all
 
 
KDE
===
 
For obtainig KDE specific programs, type
 
make USE_KDE=yes all
 
After installation, see MANUAL.TXT for a guided tour.
 
 
Installing new target reference files
=====================================
If the target vendor gives you a diskette, press the "..." button on right
and select the floppy drive. You can add references by copying reference
files into the directory.
 
IMPORTANT: DON'T PLACE ANY SPARE FILES, ONLY TARGET REFERENCES.
 
Final notes
===========
 
Don't expect magic. These profilers does build ICC profiles for your
devices, but is up to the application to use this profiles in order to
accomplish color management. Adobe's PhotoShop, for example does
understand these profiles. Littlecms comes also with a utility for
converting tiff files. If you want to see how can better this system
the color reproduction, convert a scanned image to monitor space
 
tifficc /iscanner.icm /omonitor.icm image_in.tif image_out.tif
 
Also note that Qt does not support any type of image, TIFF, for example
is not supported. JPEG, BMP are generally available. The list of
supported formats does vary on platform and Qt version.
