convert a Biorad confocal file into a PGM image

Examples (TL;DR)


bioradtopgm [-image#] [imagedata]


This program is part of Netpbm(1).

bioradtopgm reads a Biorad confocal file as input and produces a PGM image as output.  If the resulting image is upside down, run it through pamflip -tb.


In addition to the options common to all programs based on libnetpbm (most notably -quiet, see Common Options ), bioradtopgm recognizes the following command line option:


A Biorad image file may contain more than one image. With this option, you can specify which image to extract (only one at a time). The first image in the file has number zero. If no image number is supplied, only information about the image size and the number of images in the input is printed out. No output is produced.
