Apply device-independent color space transformation
B = applycform(A,C)
B = applycform(A,C) converts
the color values in
A to the color space specified
in the color transformation structure
C. The color
transformation structure specifies various parameters of the transformation.
makecform for details.
A is two-dimensional, each row is interpreted
as a color unless the color transformation structure contains a grayscale
ICC profile. (See Note for this case.)
A can have
one or more columns, depending on the input color space.
the same number of rows and one or more columns, depending on the
output color space. (The ICC spec currently supports up to 15-channel
A is three-dimensional, each row-column
location is interpreted as a color, and
typically 1 or more, depending on the input color space.

Read color image that uses the sRGB color space into the workspace.
rgb = imread('peppers.png');
Create a color transformation structure that defines an sRGB to L*a*b* conversion.
C = makecform('srgb2lab');
Perform the transformation with applycform.
lab = applycform(rgb,C);
