NAME
       tiffdither - convert a greyscale image to bilevel using dithering

SYNOPSIS
       tiffdither [ options ] input.tif output.tif

DESCRIPTION
       tiffdither converts a single channel 8-bit greyscale image to a bilevel image using Floyd-
       Steinberg error propagation with threholding.

OPTIONS
       -c     Specify the compression to use for data written to the output  file:  none  for  no
	      compression, packbits for PackBits compression, lzw for Lempel-Ziv & Welch compres-
	      sion, zip for Deflate compression, g3 for CCITT Group 3 (T.4) compression,  and  g4
	      for  CCITT  Group  4  (T.6)  compression.  By default tiffdither will compress data
	      according to the value of the Compression tag found in the source file.

	      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
	      for 1-dimensional encoding, 2d for 2-dimensional encoding, and fill to  force  each
	      encoded  scanline to be zero-filled so that the terminating EOL code lies on a byte
	      boundary.  Group 3-specific options are specified by  appending  a  ``:''-separated
	      list  to	the  ``g3'' option; e.g.  -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 differ-
	      encing before it is encoded; a value of 1 forces each scanline to be encoded  with-
	      out  differencing.   LZW-specific  options are specified by appending a ``:''-sepa-
	      rated list to the ``lzw'' option; e.g.  -c lzw:2 for LZW compression with  horizon-
	      tal differencing.

       -f     Specify  the  bit fill order to use in writing output data.  By default, tiffdither
	      will create a new file with the same fill order as  the  original.   Specifying  -f
	      lsb2msb will force data to be written with the FillOrder tag set to LSB2MSB , while
	      -f msb2lsb will force data to be written with the FillOrder tag set to MSB2LSB .

       -t     Set the threshold value for dithering.  By default the threshold value is 128.

NOTES
       The dither algorithm is taken from the tiffmedian(1) program (written by Paul Heckbert).
