NAME
       tiff2pdf - convert a TIFF image to a PDF document

SYNOPSIS
       tiff2pdf [ options ] input.tiff

DESCRIPTION
       tiff2pdf opens a TIFF image and writes a PDF document to standard output.

       The program converts one TIFF file to one PDF file, including multiple page TIFF files, tiled TIFF files, black
       and white. grayscale, and color TIFF files that contain data of TIFF photometric  interpretations  of  bilevel,
       grayscale, RGB, YCbCr, CMYK separation, and ICC L*a*b* as supported by libtiff and PDF.

       If  you  have  multiple TIFF files to convert into one PDF file then use tiffcp or other program to concatenate
       the files into a multiple page TIFF file.  If the input TIFF file is of huge  dimensions  (greater  than  10000
       pixels height or width) convert the input image to a tiled TIFF if it is not already.

       The standard output is standard output.  Set the output file name with the -o output.pdf option.

       All  black  and white files are compressed into a single strip CCITT G4 Fax compressed PDF, unless tiled, where
       tiled black and white images are compressed into tiled CCITT G4 Fax compressed PDF, libtiff  CCITT  support  is
       assumed.

       Color  and grayscale data can be compressed using either JPEG compression, ITU-T T.81, or Zip/Deflate LZ77 com-
       pression.  Set the compression type using the -j or -z options.  JPEG compression support requires that libtiff
       be  configured  with JPEG support, and Zip/Deflate compression support requires that libtiff be configured with
       Zip support, in tiffconf.h.  Use only one or the other of -j and -z.

       If the input TIFF contains single strip CCITT G4 Fax compressed information, then that is written  to  the  PDF
       file without transcoding, unless the options of no compression and no passthrough are set, -d and -n.

       If  the  input  TIFF contains JPEG or single strip Zip/Deflate compressed information, and they are configured,
       then that is written to the PDF file  without  transcoding,  unless  the  options  of  no  compression  and  no
       passthrough are set.

       The  default  page  size  upon which the TIFF image is placed is determined by the resolution and extent of the
       image data.  Default values for the TIFF image resolution can be set using the -x and  -y  options.   The  page
       size  can be set using the -p option for paper size, or -w and -l for paper width and length, then each page of
       the TIFF image is centered on its page.  The distance unit for default resolution and page width and length can
       be set by the -u option, the default unit is inch.

       Various  items of the output document information can be set with the -e, -c, -a, -t, -s, and -k options.  Set-
       ting the argument of the option to "" for these tags causes the relevant document information field to  be  not
       written.   Some  of  the document information values otherwise get their information from the input TIFF image,
       the software, author, document name, and image description.

OPTIONS
       -o output-file
              Set the output to go to file.  output-file

       -j     Compress with JPEG (requires libjpeg configured with libtiff).

       -q quality
              Set the compression quality, 1-100 for JPEG.

       -n     Do not allow data to be converted without uncompressing, no compressed data passthrough.

       -b     Set PDF ''Interpolate'' user preference.

       -d     Do not compress (decompress).

       -i     Invert colors.

              Set paper size, e.g., letter, legal, A4.

       -u [i|m]
              Set distance unit, i for inch, m for centimeter.

       -w width
              Set width in units.

       -l length
              Set length in units.

       -x xres
              Set x/width resolution default.

       -y yres
              Set y/length resolution default.

       -r [d|o]
              Set d for resolution default for images without resolution, o for resolution override for all images.

       -f     Set PDF ''Fit Window'' user preference.

       -e YYYYMMDDHHMMSS
              Set document information date, overrides image or current date/time default, YYYYMMDDHHMMSS.

       -c creator
              Set document information creator, overrides image software default.

       -a author
              Set document information author, overrides image artist default.

       -t title
              Set document information title, overrides image document name default.

       -s subject
              Set document information subject, overrides image image description default.

       -k keywords
              Set document information keywords.

       -h     List usage reminder to stderr and exit.

EXAMPLES
       The following example would generate the file output.pdf from input.tiff.
              tiff2pdf -o output.pdf input.tiff

       The following example would generate PDF output from input.tiff and write it to standard output.
              tiff2pdf input.tiff

       The following example would generate the file output.pdf from input.tiff, putting the image pages on  a  letter
       sized page, compressing the output with JPEG, with JPEG quality 75, setting the title to ''Document'', and set-
       ting the ''Fit Window'' option.
              tiff2pdf -p letter -j -q 75 -t "Document" -f -o output.pdf input.tiff
