'Choose LittleCMS color management engine
bitmap.ColorManagement.ColorManagementEngine = Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Transforms.ColorManagementEngine.LittleCms

'Load CMYK image with embedded ICC profile from file
bitmap.Load("C:\Horses.jpg")

'Display location of the embedded profile
System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("ICC Profile is located here:" & vbNewLine & _
  bitmap.ColorProfile.FileName)
C#
Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Bitmap bitmap = 
    new Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Bitmap(@"c:\Mountain.jpg");
//Choose LittleCMS color management engine
bitmap.ColorManagement.ColorManagementEngine = Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Transforms.ColorManagementEngine.LittleCms;

//Assign current sRGB profile
bitmap.ColorProfile = Aurigma.GraphicsMill.ColorProfile.FromSrgb();

//Save image with embedded color profile
bitmap.Save(@"c:\Mountain2.jpg", 
    new Aurigma.GraphicsMill.Codecs.JpegEncoderOptions());
