OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for tiffcp (opensolaris section 1)

NAME
       tiffcp - copy, and possibly convert, a TIFF file

SYNOPSIS
       tiffcp [options] src1.tif... srcN.tif dest.tif

DESCRIPTION
       tiffcp combines one or more files created according to the Tag Image File Format, Revision
       6.0 into a single TIFF file. The output file might be compressed using a  different  algo-
       rithm  than the input files.  Therefore. tiffcp is most often used to convert between dif-
       ferent compression schemes.

       By default, tiffcp copies all of the understood tags in a TIFF directory of an input file,
       to the associated directory in the output file.

       tiffcp  can  be	used  to reorganize the storage characteristics of data in a file, but is
       explicitly intended to not alter or convert the image data content in any way.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -B	       Force output to be written with Big-Endian byte order.  This  option  only
		       has  an effect when the output file is created or overwritten. This option
		       has no effect when you append to the output file.

       -C	       Suppress the use of "strip chopping" when reading images that have a  sin-
		       gle strip or tile of uncompressed data.

       -c	       Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data:

		       -c g3		       CCITT Group 3 compression algorithm.

		       -c g4		       CCITT Group 4 compression algorithm.

		       -c jpeg		       Baseline JPEG compression algorithm.

		       -c lzw		       Lempel-Ziv and Welch algorithm.

		       -c none		       No compression.

		       -c packbits	       PackBits compression algorithm.

		       -c zip		       Deflate compression algorithm.

		       By  default, tiffcp compresses data according to the value of the Compres-
		       sion tag found in the source file.

       -f	       Specify the bit fill order to use to write output data. By default, tiffcp
		       creates	a  new	file with the same fill order as the original. Specify -f
		       lsb2msb to force data to be written with the FillOrder tag set to LSB2MSB.
		       Specify	-f msb2lsb to force data to be written with the FillOrder tag set
		       to MSB2LSB.

       -l	       Specify the length of a tile in pixels. tiffcp attempts to  set	the  tile
		       dimensions so that no more than 8 kilobytes of data appear in a tile.

       -L	       Force output to be written with Little-Endian byte order. This option only
		       has an effect when the output file is created or overwritten. This  option
		       has no effect when you append to the output file.

       -M	       Suppress the use of memory-mapped files when reading images.

       -p	       Explicitly  select the planar configuration used to write image data  that
		       has one 8-bit sample per pixel. By default, tiffcp creates a new file with
		       the same planar configuration as the original.

		       -p contig	       Samples are packed contiguously.

		       -p separate	       Samples are stored separately.

       -r	       Write data with a specified number of rows per strip. By default, the num-
		       ber of rows per strip is selected so that each strip  is  approximately	8
		       kilobytes.

       -s	       Force  the output file to be written with data organized in strips instead
		       of tiles.

       -t	       Force the output file to be written with data organized in  tiles  instead
		       of strips.

       -w	       Specify	the  width  of	a tile in pixels. tiffcp attempts to set the tile
		       dimensions so that no more than 8 kilobytes of data appear in a tile.

OPERANDS
       The following operands are supported:

       src.tif	       The name of the source file.

       dest.tif        The name of the destination file.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
       The CCITT Group 3 and Group 4 compression algorithms can only be used with bilevel data.

       Group 3 compression can be specified together with several T.4-specific options:

       1d		       1-dimensional encoding

       2d		       2-dimensional encoding

       fill		       Force each encoded scanline to be zero-filled so that  the  termi-
			       nating EOL code lies on a byte boundary.

       Group  3-specific  options  are	specified  by  appending a colon-separated list to the g3
       option. For example, specify -c g3:2d:fill to get 2D-encoded data  with	byte-aligned  EOL
       codes.

       LZW  compression  can be specified together with a predictor value. A predictor value of 2
       causes each scanline of the output image to undergo horizontal differencing  before  being
       encoded. A predictor value of 1 forces each scanline to be encoded without differencing.

       LZW-specific  options are specified by appending a colon-separated list to the lzw option.
       For example, specify -c lzw:2 for LZW compression with horizontal differencing.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1: Concatenating Two Files and Writing the Result Using LZW Encoding

       example% tiffcp -c lzw a.tif b.tif result.tif

       Example 2: Converting a G3 1d-Encoded TIFF to a Single Strip of G4-Encoded Data

       example% tiffcp -c g4 -r 10000 g3.tif g4.tif

       In this example, 1000 is a number that is larger than the number of  rows  in  the  source
       file.
