GIF2TIFF(1)                                           GIF2TIFF(1)

NAME
       gif2tiff  -  create  a TIFF file from a GIF87 format image
       file

SYNOPSIS
       gif2tiff [ options ] input.gif output.tif

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 Lempel-Ziv & Welch algorithm (Compres-
       sion=5).   These characteristics can overriden, or explic-
       itly specified with the options described below.

OPTIONS
       -c     Specify a compression scheme to  use  when  writing
              image data: -c none for no compression, -c packbits
              for the PackBits compression algorithm, -c zip  for
              the  Deflate  compression algorithm, and -c lzw for
              Lempel-Ziv & Welch (the default).

       -r     Write data with a  specified  number  of  rows  per
              strip;  by  default  the  number  of  rows/strip is
              selected so that  each  strip  is  approximately  8
              kilobytes.

NOTES
       The  program  is  based on Paul Haeberli's fromgif program
       which, in turn, is based on Marcel J.E. Mol's GIF  reader.

BUGS
       Should have more options to control output format.
