ICC color profiles for use with color profile aware software
Color management allows controlled conversion between color representation of input and output devices and color spaces. ICC profiles are an important part of color management. They are data files that represent mappings between the input or output color space of a particular device and the device-agnostic profile connection space (PCS) in accordance with the standards set by the International Color Consortium (ICC). This package contains a number of high quality ICC color profiles for use with color profile aware software such as Scribus, Gimp, CinePaint, Krita, or Digikam. In general this package is useful if the software using it was built against a color management support library such as liblcms1 or liblcms2-2. In some software such as Scribus you have to explicitly enable color managemenent in the preferences to be able to use these profiles. The sampleicc-tools package contains tools that can be used to manipulate and query the icc profiles in Debian.
The color profiles in this package are available under free software licenses. Additional profiles under non-free licenses are available in the icc-profiles package.
