  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.
