NAME

       didjvu - DjVu encoder with foreground/background separation

SYNOPSIS

       didjvu separate [{-o | --output} output-mask] [option...] input-image

       didjvu separate --output-template name-template  [option...] input-image...

       didjvu encode [{-o | --output} output-djvu] [option...] input-image

       didjvu encode --output-template name-template  [option...] input-image...

       didjvu {--version | --help | -h}

DESCRIPTION

       didjvu uses the Gamera[1] framework to separate foreground/background layers, which can be
       then encoded into a DjVu file.

       didjvu separate generates images mask(s) for the supplied input image(s). Masks are saved
       in the PNG format.

       didjvu encode converts the supplied input image(s) to single-page DjVu documents(s).

       didjvu bundle converts the supplied input image(s) to a bundled multi-page DjVu document.

OPTIONS

       didjvu accepts the following options:

   Input, output
       -o, --output=output-djvu
           Generate a bundled multi-page document. Write the file into output-djvu file instead
           of standard output.

           For separate and encode commands this option is allowed only if there is exactly one
           input file (i.e. exactly one output file).

       --output-template=template
           Specifies the naming scheme for output files for the separate and encode commands.
           Please consult the “TEMPLATE LANGUAGE” section for the template language description.

           This option is mandatory if there is more than one input file (i.e. more than one
           output file).

       --pageid-template=template
           Specifies the naming scheme for page identifiers for the bundle command. Please
           consult the “TEMPLATE LANGUAGE” section for the template language description. The
           default template is “{base-ext}.djvu”.

           For portability reasons, page identifiers:

           ·   must consist only of lowercase ASCII letters, digits, _, +, - and dot,

           ·   cannot start with a +, - or a dot,

           ·   cannot contain two consecutive dots,

           ·   must end with the .djvu extension.

   Masks
       --loss-level=n
           Specifies the aggressiveness of the lossy compression for the separate and encode
           commands. The default is 0 (lossless). Valid values are integers between 0 and 200,
           inclusive.

           This option is similar to the -losslevel option of cjb2; please consult the cjb2(1)
           manual page for details.

       --lossless
           Synonym for --loss-level=0.

       --clean
           Synonym for --loss-level=1.

       --lossy
           Synonym for --loss-level=100.

       -m, --method=method
           Use the selected method to generate image mask (i.e. separate foreground from
           background). The following methods should be available:

                   Note
                   this method requires Gamera ≥ 3.4.0

               DjVu thresholding algorithm

           niblack
               Niblack adaptive thresholding algorithm

               Sauvola adaptive thresholding algorithm

           shading-subtraction
               thresholds an image after subtracting a possibly shaded background

                   Note
                   this method requires Gamera ≥ 3.3.1

           tsai
               splitting along a threshold value determined using the Tsai Moment Preserving
               Threshold algorithm

           white-rohrer
               White and Rohrer dynamic thresholding algorithm

           The default is ‘djvu’.

           Please consult the Gamera documentation[2] for details.

       -p, --pages-per-dict=n
           For bundle command: if n > 1, compress mask using minidjvu using n pages in one pass.
           The default is 1.

       --masks, --mask=input-mask
           Use the pre-generated image masks for the encode and bundle commands.

       --fg-slices=n
           Specifies the encoding quality of the IW44 foreground layer. The default is 100.
