tiffsplit man page

tiffsplit — split a multi-image TIFF into single-image TIFF files


tiffsplit src.tif [ prefix ]


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.
