Are you sure of ImageMagick? I read in the "depth" parameter that it understands only 8 or 16 bit colors. My impression is that colors just adjust/fixes/quantizes colortables. Since it will take some effort to compile ImageMagick for Solaris, will it be worth it?

I don't think netpbm is any longer maintained. Last version was from 1994. I am not sure it is considered a bug. Tiffinfo understands it OK, and Document Viewer from Office XP displays it OK. Just that the standard Image/Fax viewer of Windows XP doesn't support the output. And I have to make it work with it.

Thanks,

Somehow it produces weird code (double error) that is viewable on multipaged tiffs (only the first page) but it is not viewable with single page tifs. I apologize for the noise I created. BTW do you know of any good opensource unix color reduction utility for tiffs (command line preferably)?

You can try ImageMagick (search for the 'colors' command line option). And... what about upgrading the NetPBM? Anyway, don't forget to send a bugreport to its developers!
