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 compression.  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.  Setting 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.

       The  Portable  Document  Format  (PDF)  specification  is  copyrighted  by  Adobe Systems,
       Incorporated.

       -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.

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 setting the ``Fit Window'' option.
              tiff2pdf -p letter -j -q 75 -t "Document" -f -o output.pdf input.tiff
