NAME
       tiffdither - convert a greyscale image to bilevel using dithering

SYNOPSIS
       tiffdither [ options ] input.tif output.tif

DESCRIPTION
       tiffdither converts a single channel 8-bit greyscale image to a bilevel
       image using Floyd-Steinberg error propagation with thresholding.

OPTIONS
       -c     Specify the compression to use for data written  to  the	output
	      file:  none  for	no compression, packbits for PackBits compres‐
	      sion, lzw for Lempel-Ziv & Welch compression,  zip  for  Deflate
	      compression,  g3 for CCITT Group 3 (T.4) compression, and g4 for
	      CCITT Group 4 (T.6) compression.	 By  default  tiffdither  will
	      compress	data  according	 to  the  value of the Compression tag
	      found in the source file.

	      The CCITT Group 3 and Group 4 compression algorithms can only be
	      used with bilevel data.

	      Group  3	compression  can  be  specified	 together with several
	      T.4-specific options: 1d	for  1-dimensional  encoding,  2d  for
	      2-dimensional  encoding, and fill to force each encoded scanline
	      to be zero-filled so that the terminating EOL  code  lies	 on  a
	      byte  boundary.	Group  3-specific  options  are	 specified  by
	      appending a ``:''-separated list to the ``g3'' option; e.g.   -c
	      g3:2d:fill to get 2D-encoded data with byte-aligned EOL codes.

	      LZW  compression	can  be	 specified  together  with a predictor
	      value.  A predictor value of 2 causes each scanline of the  out‐
	      put  image  to  undergo  horizontal  differencing	 before	 it is
	      encoded; a value of 1 forces each scanline to be encoded without
	      differencing.  LZW-specific options are specified by appending a
	      ``:''-separated list to the ``lzw'' option; e.g.	-c  lzw:2  for
	      LZW compression with horizontal differencing.

       -f     Specify  the  bit	 fill order to use in writing output data.  By
	      default, tiffdither will create a new file with  the  same  fill
	      order as the original.  Specifying -f lsb2msb will force data to
	      be written with the FillOrder tag set  to	 LSB2MSB  ,  while  -f
	      msb2lsb will force data to be written with the FillOrder tag set
	      to MSB2LSB .

       -t     Set the threshold value for dithering.  By default the threshold
	      value is 128.

NOTES
       The  dither  algorithm is taken from the tiffmedian(1) program (written
       by Paul Heckbert).
