for the tiffinfo output, i still has two questions desiring kind help from you.

1. what means "ICC Profile: <present>"? and what is ICC?

And he was fifty-two and it suddenly struck him that he had never really given anything of himself. His life was for no one and nothing. He was almost crying saying that.
