NAME bmp2tiff - create a TIFF file from a Microsoft Windows Device Indepen- dent Bitmap image file

SYNOPSIS bmp2tiff [ options ] input.bmp [ input2.bmp ... ] output.tiff

DESCRIPTION bmp2tiff converts a Microsoft Windows Device Independent Bitmap image file to TIFF. If several input BMP files are being specified the mul- tipage TIFF output file will be created. By default, the TIFF image is created with data samples packed (PlanarConfiguration=1), compressed with the PackBits algorithm (Compression=32773), and with each strip no more than 8 kilobytes. These characteristics can overridden, or explicitly specified with the options described below.

OPTIONS -c Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data: -c none for no compression, -c packbits for the PackBits compres- sion algorithm (the default), -c jpeg for the baseline JPEG com- pression algorithm, -c zip for the Deflate compression algo- rithm, and -c lzw for Lempel-Ziv & Welch.

-r number Write data with a specified number of rows per strip; by default the number of rows/strip is selected so that each strip is approximately 8 kilobytes.
