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 sam-
       ples compressed with the Lempel-Ziv & Welch algorithm (Compression=5).  These characteristics  can  overridden,
       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 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.
