pnmtile - Man Page

replicate an image to fill a specified region

Examples (TL;DR)


pnmtile width height [pnmfile]


This program is part of Netpbm(1).

pnmtile reads a PNM image as input.  It replicates it to fill an area of the specified dimensions and produces an image in the same format as output.

You can do pretty much the reverse with pamdice.

You can explicitly concatenate an image to itself (or anything else) with pnmcat.

If you're trying to tile multiple images into a superimage, see pamundice or (for a thumbnail sheet) pnmindex.


There are no command line options defined specifically for pnmtile, but it recognizes the options common to all programs based on libnetpbm (See Common Options .)
