NAME

       econvert - image converter of the ExactImage toolkit

SYNOPSIS

       econvert [option...] [{-i | --input} input-file...] [{-o | --output} output-file...]

       econvert {-h | --help}

DESCRIPTION

       ExactImage is a fast C++ image processing library. Unlike many other library frameworks it
       allows operation in several color spaces and bit depths natively, resulting in low memory
       and computational requirements.

       econvert is a command line frontend for the image processing library and mimicks
       ImageMagick's convert. However econvert syntax is not compatible with convert.

OPTIONS

   Input/output
       -i file, --input file
           Read image from the specified file. Optionally, filenames can be prefixed with format
           name, e.g.  jpg:- or raw:rgb8-dump.

       -o file, --output file
           Save output image to the specified file. Optionally, filenames can be prefixed with

       -a file, --append file
           Append output image to the specified file. Existing image must have the same width as

EXAMPLES

   Basics
       Image data must be read using -i or --input, processing routines are selected by their
       name with two leading dashes (e.g.  --rotate) and at any point the data might be written
       into a file with -o or --output, for example:

           econvert -i lenea.tiff --box-scale 0.5 -o medium.png --box-scale 0.5 -o little.png

   Lossless transformations of JPEG files
       The library delays image decoding as much as possible and provides lossless algorithms to
       work on compressed data (such as JPEGs) directly:

           econvert -i AV220-Scan.JPG --resolution 300x300 -o 1.jpg --rotate 90 -o 2.jpg --rotate 180 -o 3.jpg --rotate -90 -o 4.jpg --flip -o 5.jpg --flop -o 6.jpg --scale 0.25 -o thumb.jpg

       In this example 1.jpg will be created from the original JPEG DCT coefficients, those
       coefficients will be rearranged and 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 4.jpg, 5.jpg and 6.jpg will be written
       without any additional loss in quality. Only at the end, for image thumb.jpg, the DCT will
       actually be decoded — but due to the accelerated JPEG scaling only partially.

   Thumbnails of bi-level images
       When 1 bit, black and white, images are scaled down, the output often looks bad, as the
       library algorithms always operate in the color-space the image data is stored in. To work
       around this problem, the colorspace must be changed (e.g. to 8 bit gray) before applying
       the box scaler. At the end the result might be converted back to just a few shades of gray
       such as 2 or 4 bit:

           econvert -i avision-bw-scan.pbm --colorspace gray8 --box-scale 0.125 --colorspace gray2 -o thumb.png

   Faster JPEG down-scaling
       If you don't care about quality, only about throughput, you can force nearest neighbor
       scaling by just specifying a scale factor the JPEG decoder can accelerate (½, ¼, or 1/8)
       and apply the remaining scaling manually. To achieve faster scaling with the effective
       factor 1/3:

           econvert -i big.jpg --scale .5 --nearest-scale 0.66 -o thumb.jpg

   Working with digital camera RAW data
       Wide range of digital camera RAW formats is supported. Usually decoding of RAW data should
       be transparent and automatic, however some formats also are also valid TIFF files and the
       embedded thumbnail might be picked by in favour of the actual RAW content. This this cases
       the dcraw decoder can explicitly be requested with the decoder prefix of the input
       parameter:

           econvert -i dcraw:img_0123.cr2 ...

       To quickly extract the embedded thumbnail preview, specify thumb as decompression method
       before the image is loaded:

           econvert --decompress thumb -i dcraw:img_0123.cr2 ...

   Loading arbitrary raw data
       It is possible to load arbitrary raw data via the raw: codec specification; color-depth
       (colorspace) and size for the raw data have to be explicitly specified:

           econvert --size 1696x32 --colorspace rgb8 -i raw:data-file ...
