NAME
pal2rgb - convert a palette color TIFF image to a full color image
SYNOPSIS
pal2rgb [options] input.tif output.tif
DESCRIPTION
pal2rgb converts a palette color TIFF image to a full color image by applying the colormap of the palette image to each sample to generate a full color RGB image.
OPTIONS
Input Data Options The following input data options are supported: -C Override the default behavior of pal2rgb to determine whether or not colormap entries contain 16-bit or 8-bit values. By default, the colormap is inspected and if no colormap entry greater than 255 is found, the colormap is assumed to have only 8-bit values. Otherwise, 16-bit values, as required by the TIFF specification, are assumed. The -C option can be used to explicitly specify the number of bits for colormap entries: -C 8 for 8-bit values, -C 16 for 16-bit values. Output File Options The following output file options are supported: -c Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data: -c lzw Lempel-Ziv and Welch algorithm. -c none No compression. -c packbits PackBits compression algorithm. -c zip Deflate compression algorithm. If no compression-related option is specified, the input-file compression algorithm is used. -p Explicitly select the planar configuration used to organize data samples in the output image: -p contig Samples are packed contiguously. This is the default. -p separate Samples are stored separately. -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.
OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: input.tif The name of the input TIFF file. output.tif The name of the output file.
