       bmp2tiff  - create a TIFF file from a Microsoft Windows Device Indepen-
       dent Bitmap image file


       bmp2tiff [ options ] input.bmp output.tiff


       bmp2tiff converts a Microsoft Windows Device Independent  Bitmap  image
       file  to TIFF.  By default, the TIFF image is created with data samples
       packed (PlanarConfiguration=1), compressed with the PackBits  algorithm
       (Compression=32773),  and  with  each  strip  no more than 8 kilobytes.
       These characteristics can overridden, or explicitly specified with  the
       options described below.


       -c     Specify  a compression scheme to use when writing image data: -c
              none for no compression, -c packbits for the  PackBits  compres-
              sion algorithm (the default), -c jpeg for the baseline JPEG com-
              pression algorithm, -c zip for  the  Deflate  compression  algo-
              rithm, and -c lzw for Lempel-Ziv & Welch.

       -r <number>
              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.
