Hi,  I'm trying to convert a large 16 bits/sample TIFF image stack into
an 8 bits/sample stack. (Truncating the least significant byte of each
pixel.)

My usual trick is to use tiffsplit to split apart the stack, and then
irfanview to process each image, and then tiffcp to reassemble the
stack, but in this case tiffsplit seems to get rid of the most
significant byte of each 16 bit sample leaving me with some psychedelic
least significant 8 bits in each image.

I'm starting to look at imagemagick, but I'm wondering if anyone has a
favorite tool or procedure that could help me work with this file.
 

Thanks,

-Jim
