DESCRIPTION
gif2tiff converts a file in the GIF87 format to TIFF. The TIFF image is created as a palette image, with samples compressed with the Lem- pel-Ziv and Welch algorithm (Compression=5). These characteristics can be overridden or explicitly specified with the options described below.
OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -c Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data: -c lzw Lempel-Ziv and Welch algorithm. This is the default algorithm. -c none No compression. -c packbits PackBits compression algorithm. -c zip Deflate compression algorithm. -r Write data with a specified number of rows per strip. By default, the number of rows per strip is selected so that each strip is approximately 8 kilobytes.
