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 over‐
       ridden, 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 compres‐
	      sion 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.
