Is there any utility to create/convert a image to binary TIFF image. I want to use that binary tiff image as a input to a software ( an open source project which takes only binary tiff images as input).

potential duplicate of… -- asks about the opposite direction (TIFF -> something else), but the utilities there should also do what you're looking for. – quack quixote Jun 14 '10 at 11:46

You could use ImageMagick's convert option with the -monochrome parameter, for example:

convert -monochrome input.tif output.tif

Convert has many options for compression, threshold, filtering, etc. See this link for the options. ImageMagick runs on Linux and Windows.
