       convert_image - convert images to CBF format using a template


       convert_image [options]


       convert_image  is  a program that can convert images from a MAR180, MAR300, MAR345 or ADSC
       CCD detector and convert them to CBF format.

       convert_image requires two arguments: imagefile and cbffile. Those are the  primary  input
       and  output.  The detector type is extracted from the image file or from the command line,
       converted to lower case and used to construct the name of a template cbf file to  use  for
       the copy. The template file name is of the form template_name_columnsxrows.

       To run makecbf with the example image, type:

       makecbf example.mar2300 test.cbf


       -i input_img
              (default:  stdin)  the input file as an image in smv, mar300, or mar345 format.  If
              input_img is not specified or is given as  "-",  it  is  copied  from  stdin  to  a
              temporary file.

       -p template_cbf
              the  template  for  the final cbf to be produced.  If template_cbf is not specified
              the name is constructed from the first token of the detector  name  and  the  image
              size as template_<type>_<columns>x<rows>.cbf

       -o output_cbf
              (default:  stdout  )  the  output cbf combining the image and the template.  If the
              output_cbf is not specified or is given as "-", it is written to stdout.

       -d detectorname
              a detector name to be used if none is provided in the image header.

       -F     when writing packed compression, treat  the  entire  image  as  one  line  with  no

       -m [x|y|x=y]
              (default  x=y,  square arrays only) mirror the array in the x-axis (y -> -y) in the
              y-axis (x -> -x) or in x=y ( x -> y, y-> x)

       -r n   rotate the array n times 90 degrees counter clockwise x -> y,  y  ->  -x  for  each
              rotation, n = 1, 2 or 3

       -R     if setting a beam center, set reference values of axis settings as well as standard

       -z distance
              detector distance along Z-axis

       -c category_alias=category_root

       -t tag_alias=tagroot
              map the given alias to the given root, so that instead of outputting the alias, the
              root will be presented in the output cbf instead.  These options may be repeated as
              many times as needed.
