Hi there

I'm working on my company's internal imaging solution, and have used libtiff for much of our tif file handling.

I was wondering do you have any code for converting file format from tiff to gif?

any help would be greatly appreciated


I see that the TIFF tools directory has a gif2tiff, but no corresponding tiff2gif. If you want to avoid LZW compression in the output gif file you could use libungif for writing the gif image:


I see the libungif project also now has giflib available, the version that does do LZW compression.

If you just want a utility that does the operation, then lots exist. I imagine the imagemagick "convert" command would do the trick. My GDAL library and utilities also handles this but is likely more baggage than you would want.

Good luck,
