NAME
       tiff2ps - convert a TIFF image to PostScripttm

SYNOPSIS
       tiff2ps [ options ] input.tif ...

DESCRIPTION
       tiff2ps	reads  TIFF  images and writes PostScript or Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) on the
       standard output.  By default, tiff2ps writes Encapsulated PostScript for the  first  image
       in the specified TIFF image file.

       By  default,  tiff2ps  will generate PostScript that fills a printed area specified by the
       TIFF tags in the input file.  If the file does  not  contain  XResolution  or  YResolution
       tags,  then  the  printed  area	is  set according to the image dimensions.  The -w and -h
       options (see below) can be used to set the dimensions of the printed area in inches; over-
       riding any relevant TIFF tags.

       The  PostScript	generated for RGB, palette, and CMYK images uses the colorimage operator.
       The PostScript generated for greyscale and bilevel images uses the image  operator.   When
       the  colorimage	operator is used, PostScript code to emulate this operator on older Post-
       Script printers is also generated.  Note that this emulation code can be very slow.

       Color images with associated alpha data are composited over a white background.

OPTIONS
       -1     Generate PostScript Level 1 (the default).

       -2     Generate PostScript Level 2.

       -3     Generate PostScript Level 3. It basically allows one to use the /flateDecode filter
	      for ZIP compressed TIFF images.

       -8     Disable use of ASCII85 encoding with PostScript Level 2/3

       -a     Generate output for all IFDs (pages) in the input file.

       -b     Specify  the  bottom  margin  for  the output (in inches). This does not affect the
	      height of the printed image.

       -c     Center the image in the output. This option only shows an effect if both the -w and
	      the -h option are given.

       -d     Set the initial TIFF directory to the specified directory number.  (NB: Directories
	      are numbered starting at zero.)  This option is  useful  for  selecting  individual
	      pages in a multi-page (e.g. facsimile) file.

       -D     Enable duplex printing (two pages per sheet of paper)

       -e     Force the generation of Encapsulated PostScript (implies -z).

       -h     Specify the vertical size of the printed area (in inches).

       -H     Specify  the  maximum height of image (in inches). Images with larger sizes will be
	      split in several pages. Option -L may be used for specifying size of  split  images
	      overlapping.

       -W     Specify  the  maximum  width of image (in inches). Images with larger sizes will be
	      split in several pages. Options -L and -W are mutually exclusive.

       -i     Enable/disable pixel interpolation.  This option requires a single  numeric  value:
	      zero  to	disable  pixel	interpolation  and  non-zero  to  enable.  The default is
	      enabled.

       -L     Specify the size of overlapping for split images (in inches). Used  in  conjunction
	      with -H option and -W option.

       -l     Specify  the left margin for the output (in inches). This does not affect the width
	      of the printed image.

       -m     Where possible render using the imagemask PostScript operator instead of the  image
	      operator.  When this option is specified tiff2ps will use imagemask for rendering 1
	      bit deep images.	If this option is not specified or if the image depth is  greater
	      than 1 then the image operator is used.

       -o     Set  the	initial  TIFF  directory  to  the IFD at the specified file offset.  This
	      option is useful for selecting thumbnail images and the like which are hidden using
	      the SubIFD tag.

       -O     Write PostScript to specified file instead of standard output Set the initial

       -p     Force the generation of (non-Encapsulated) PostScript.

       -P     Set optional PageOrientation DSC comment to Landscape or Portrait.

       -r 90|180|270|auto
	      Rotate  image  by  90,  180,  270 degrees or auto.  Auto picks the best fit for the
	      image on the specified paper size (eg portrait or landscape) if -h or -w is  speci-
	      fied.  Rotation is in degrees counterclockwise. Auto rotates 90 degrees ccw to pro-
	      duce landscape.

       -s     Generate output for a single IFD (page) in the input file.

       -t     Specify the document title string

       -T     Print pages for top edge binding

       -w     Specify the horizontal size of the printed area (in inches).

       -x     Override resolution units specified in the TIFF as centimeters.

       -y     Override resolution units specified in the TIFF as inches.

       -z     When generating PostScript Level 2, data is scaled so that it does not  image  into
	      the  deadzone  on  a  page  (the outer margin that the printing device is unable to
	      mark).  This option suppresses this behavior.  When PostScript Level  1  is  gener-
	      ated, data is imaged to the entire printed page and this option has no affect.

EXAMPLES
       The following generates PostScript Level 2 for all pages of a facsimile:
	      tiff2ps -a2 fax.tif | lpr
       Note  also that if you have version 2.6.1 or newer of Ghostscript then you can efficiently
       preview facsimile generated with the above command.

       To generate Encapsulated PostScript for a the image at directory 2 of an image use:
	      tiff2ps -d 1 foo.tif
       (Notice that directories are numbered starting at zero.)

       If you have a long image, it may be split in several pages:
	      tiff2ps -h11 -w8.5 -H14 -L.5 foo.tif > foo.ps
       The page size is set to 8.5x11 by -w and -h options. We will accept a small amount of ver-
       tical  compression,  so	-H set to 14. Any pages between 11 and 14 inches will be fit onto
       one page.  Pages longer than 14 inches are cut off at 11 and continued on the  next  page.
       The -L.5 option says to repeat a half inch on the next page (to improve readability).

BUGS
       Because PostScript does not support the notion of a colormap, 8-bit palette images produce
       24-bit PostScript images.  This conversion results in output that is six times bigger than
       the  original  image  and which takes a long time to send to a printer over a serial line.
       Matters are even worse for 4-, 2-, and 1-bit palette images.

       Does not handle tiled images when generating PostScript Level I output.
