... Feel free to add your own example above to help other Linux-lovers !


tiffsplit takes a multi-directory (page) TIFF file and creates one or more single-directory (page) TIFF files from it. The output files are given names created by concatenating a prefix, a lexically ordered suffix in the range [aaa-zzz], the suffix .tif (e.g. xaaa.tif, xaab.tif, ..., xzzz.tif). If a prefix is not specified on the command line, the default prefix of x is used.




Only a select set of ’’known tags’’ is copied when splitting.
