I can give you the script which I used to create the PARSEC inputs. You must 
compile it with support for the input file format enabled (e.g. jpeg). By 
default PARSEC disables everything that is not needed to run the benchmark.

Here is the script:





echo "Using ${VIPS}"

for file in $@; do
  rm -f t1.v t2.v
  echo "Converting ${file}"
  ${VIPS} im_sRGB2XYZ ${file} t1.v 
  ${VIPS} im_XYZ2Lab t1.v t2.v
  ${VIPS} im_Lab2LabQ t2.v ${file}.v
