For example: collink -ip -cmt -dcx Original_Image_Profile.icm Backlit_Panel.icm Link_orig-panel.icm cctiff Link_orig-panel.icm Original.TIF For_Print.TIF For_Print.TIF is the image to print for baklit panel which is subject of softprof. collink -ila -ccx -dmt Backlit_Panel.icm AdobeRGB1998.icm Link_panel-to_AdobeRGB.icm cctiff Link_panel-to_AdobeRGB.icm -e AdobeRGB1998.icm For_Print.TIF Panel_Softprof.TIF Panel_Softprof.TIF is the image with softprof of the print on baklit panel. I'm didn't know at the momet, is the -la mapping appropriate for softprof for certain case because it can not to show possibly weakness of the shadows on the panel.
