SGI2TIFF(1)                                           SGI2TIFF(1)

NAME
       sgi2tiff - create a TIFF file from an SGI image file

SYNOPSIS
       sgi2tiff [ options ] input.rgb output.tif

DESCRIPTION
       sgi2tiff  converts a file in the SGI image format to TIFF.
       By default, the TIFF image is created  with  data  samples
       packed  (PlanarConfiguration=1),  compressed with the Lem-
       pel-Ziv & Welch algorithm (Compression=5), and  with  each
       strip no more than 8 kilobytes.  These characteristics can
       overriden,  or  explicitly  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 jpeg
              for the baseline JPEG compression algorithm, -c zip
              for  the  Deflate compression algorithm, and -c lzw
              for Lempel-Ziv & Welch (the default).

       -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.

       -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.

BUGS
       Does not record colormap information.
