PAL2RGB(1)                                             PAL2RGB(1)

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
       Options that affect the interpretation of input data are:

       -C     This option  overrides  the  default  behaviour  of
              pal2rgb  in  determining  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.

       Options that affect the output file format are:

       -p     Explicitly  select the planar configuration used in
              organizing data samples in  the  output  image:  -p
              contig for samples packed contiguously, and -p sep-
              arate for samples stored  separately.   By  default
              samples are packed.

       -c     Use  the  specific compression algorithm to encoded
              image data in the output file: -c packbits for Mac-
              intosh  Packbits, -c lzw for Lempel-Ziv & Welch, -c
              zip for Deflate, -c none for no compression.  If no
              compression-related  option is specified, the input
              file's compression algorithm is used.

       -r     Explicitly specify the number of rows in each strip
              of the output file.  If the -r option is not speci-
              fied, a number is selected such  that  each  output
              strip  has approximately 8 kilobytes of data in it.

BUGS
       Only 8-bit images are handled.
