factor is a value that each summed color component is divided by while 
convolving; offset is added. So, we add all values for red, green and blue in 
a set of pixels, then divice them by factor and add offset. Factor should be 
near the sum of the kernel values in the convolution kernel otherwise the 
result will be much darker or lighter.

A wrapper around an icc profile as represented in lcms. That is, it contains 
the data necessary to convert colors in a controlled way.

It returns the intensity of a color as an 8-bit value. For instance, for rgb:

return (Q_UINT8)((src[PIXEL_RED] * 0.30 + src[PIXEL_GREEN] * 0.59 + 
src[PIXEL_BLUE] * 0.11) + 0.5);

It's a kind of a grayscale representation of a color.
