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  samples  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.
