NAME
ras2tiff - create a TIFF file from a Sun rasterfile SYNOPSIS
ras2tiff [options] input.ras output.tif DESCRIPTION
ras2tiff converts a file in the Sun rasterfile format to TIFF. By default, the TIFF image is created with data samples packed (PlanarCon- figuration=1), compressed with the Lempel-Ziv and Welch algorithm (Compression=5), and with each strip no more than 8 kilobytes. These characteristics can be overridden or explicitly specified with the options described below. Any colormap information in the rasterfile is carried over to the TIFF file by including a Colormap tag in the output file. If the raster- file has a colormap, the PhotometricInterpretation tag is set to 3 (palette). Otherwise, the PhotometricInterpretation tag is set to 2 (RGB) if the depth is 24, or to 1 (min-is-black) if the depth is not 24. OPTIONS
The following options are supported: -c Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data: -c jpeg Baseline JPEG compression algorithm. -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. OPERANDS
The following operands are supported: input.ras The name of the input file that contains Sun rasterfile data. output.tif The name of the output file that contains TIFF data. ATTRIBUTES
