The King of image transformation software is Image Magick. You can use this to do most image translations / conversions, and it's a respected (and therefore as safe) as these things can be. It's a command line tool, but more powerful for that. At a command prompt, simply type ... convert multipage.tif single%d.tif to create multiple tif files.
What kind of file are you wanting? If you use the built-in screenshot shortcuts (⌘-Shift-3 / 4) it will save the screenshots by default as .png files. You can find more about this by checking out the SuperUser question: How to take screenshots in Mac OS X? You can also adjust the file type saved by the screenshot shortcuts (and screencapture on the command ...
You can try ImageMagick. I'm trying this on Linux, but it's available for Windows as well. I just have to type: convert example.tiff example.pdf and I get a PDF. With just a little batch magic, you should be able to easily convert a directory of tiff files to pdf. Or, if you need all tiffs in the same PDF, you can do convert example1.tiff example2.tiff ...
Grab (the OSX screen capture utility) creates TIFFs by default, and there is no way to change that (The settings dialog does not offer a file format option, and I didn't find any other way). It does so irrespective of the default screen capture format (which is PNG unless you have a very old OS X version). That is, even if you use the defaults write "hack" ...
There is a free Tiff Splitter: A simple WinForms app that opens a multi-page tiff file and saves all pages as individual tiff files. The input file can be selected through file browsing, or drag-and-dropped from the File Explorer. Requires .NET 4.0 / Tested on Windows 7
I have tested VLIV (the Very Large Image Viewer) with the moon image and it works flawlessly on my Windows 7 32-bit machine with 2 GB RAM. First, let me give some info on this program: Vliv is a Windows application that allows interactive viewing of gigantic TIFF images. Vliv is known to have successfully displayed a 121,600 x 97,280 image. Applications:...
IrfanView has excellent batch processing abilities. IrfanView also supports command line operations i_view32.exe c:\myimages\*.tif /convert=c:\images\*.jpg Here's the link to Command line manual
I want to suck out the highest quality from that scanner, but is there a point in scanning white paper with black ink at such a high color depth such as the 48-bit that is the max on my scanner? The shorter answer about color depth, DPI and document scanning: In short? There is 100% no valid reason to scan white paper with black ink at such a high ...
Use Ghostscript. It gives you a lot of controls over various aspects of your TIFF output. Here are a few commandline examples: gswin32c.exe ^ -o mytiffpage.tif ^ -sDEVICE=tiffg4 ^ -dFirstPage=13 ^ -dLastPage=15 ^ input.pdf This will create a multipage TIFF G4 (compressed fax format, which is grayscale) from pages 13-15 of your input.pdf, with ...
To answer how many bits of color depth you need and how it affects your results, let me start with a quick explanation of what color depth actually is. What is color depth? Color depth describes how many shades of color will be stored. If an image has extremely fine gradations of a color, scanning and storing an extremely high number of colors means that ...
Try convert or mogrify using ImageMagick. More instructions from ubuntuforums.org.
Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI) can split a TIFF using the Page>Move pages to a new file option (select pages you want to split out from the original file first). MODI is installed as part of Office 2003, and although I believe a version was included with office XP/2002, I think it was an optional install and may not have the TIFF writer necessary ...
Bytes 0-1 represent two 8-bit values> yes bytes 2-3 are a 16-number? Yes, it should be a 16-value that represents 42 in the order expected from the first two bytes and, that bytes 4-7 are a 32-bit number yes. Its value is to be interpreted correctly based on the endian-ness confirmed earlier. The little-endian start, 0x49 0x49 0x2A 0x00 0x67 0x45 ...
No, but you can use Preview to convert the image. If you're doing this as part of a workflow, you could use Automator to do the conversation automatically. If you want a screenshot in PNG format, you can use ⌘+Shift+3 to take the screenshot. Using Automator The Automator utility has a task called "Change Type of Images" that takes in a set of images and ...
If you have existing PDFs, ImageMagick can convert them to image formats like TIFF.
I'd put my bet on IrfanView - it's probably one of the better & lighter image viewers. You can also try FastPictureViewer - I haven't tried it personally but it claims to have DirectX hardware acceleration. (via product description: ) Integration with Windows 7 (Taskbar Jump List) and Windows Vista (thumbnail cache, "Browse with..." shell ...
Once an image is converted or created in jpg format, the detail is lost. The "compression" in jpg is not like a zip file in which the file is made smaller but every bit still exists. Jpg uses lossy compression -- this means that some data is lost during the compression process. The best you'll be able to do is to have a tiff file with the same quality as ...
You can return the number of pages in a tiff using identify -format "%p" multipage.tif.
Considering this question is the top result on Google for "mac grab save as png", I thought I'd add my workaround for this. The Grab app allows you to include a mouse pointer in a screenshot, which I use frequently to illustrate hover states and such. The built-in ⌘-Shift-3 / 4 screenshot utility doesn't have this functionality, as far as I know. So here's ...
You could try GraphicsMagick which is a derivative of ImageMagick and claims to have many improvements, including performance. I have not tried it myself.
I believe Paint.NET is limited to 8-bits per channle but I don't have a reference for that. Mainstream Gimp is limited to 8-bits per channel. Variants of Gimp used by the film industry have greater bit-depth Film Gimp has vast dynamic range: 16-bits per channel (64-bit RGBA) Film Gimp is also known as CinePaint
Would the following imagemagick command do what you need? convert -colorspace rgb file.pdf file.jpg Here's some additional info as well.
If you use imagemagick? and say convert -compress none *.jpg Picts.tiff Tell me if it works right for you
I would suggest that amongst the factors to consider is your available storage space & also eventual goal. TIFF can be huge, but they are the most 'accurate' One you didn't mention, but that I would consider long before JPG is PNG PNG is a compressed format, so is smaller than TIFF, & is theoretically lossless, so you shouldn't lose any of the ...
On the other hand, there are situations where the scan itself at higher bits could be useful. When there is very little available contrast or range on the scanned materials. In my experience the usual consumer scanners do not have any real adjustments in the hardware, for adjusting color , contrast, sensitivity, or lighting. All the adjustments are done ...
AFAIK, 8-bit and 16-bit in TIFF file refers to the image pixel data contained in the file itself. Headers and IFD are the same irregardless of what bit-depth the TIFF file is in. The first 8 bytes forms the header for the TIFF file, and the IFD contains 12 bytes. EDIT : You can find out more information about the structure of a TIFF file here.
If it is just a parser rather than an editor you want, Hachoir parser might work -- though I have never tried it myself. In general, I think there should be modules in Perl, Python, etc to parse TIFF files. Therefore, there should be tools to dump headers for TIFF. Hachoir parser is a Python tool.
There's probably a slightly more elegant way, but this should do it for you: for FILE in $(ls *.tif); do \ for I in R G B; do \ convert -channel $I -separate -format jpg $FILE $FILE-$I.jpg ; \ done ; \ done ; \ rename s/\.tif\-/\-/ *.jpg
You don't need software. Just open the Tiff file with a photoviewer or something like that. Then select "make a copy" or "save as". Rename the file and change the format type to Jpeg. Save it to any location of your choice. It will make a copy of the current page you were working on but as a single page. Hope that helps. It worked for me.
