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  (PlanarConfigura-
       tion=1),  compressed  with  the  Lempel-Ziv & Welch algorithm (Compres-
       sion=5), and with each strip no more than 8 kilobytes.   These  charac-
       teristics  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 compres-
              sion algorithm), -c jpeg for the baseline JPEG compression algo-
              rithm,  -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 separate 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.
