PIC2PS(9.1)                                                        PIC2PS(9.1)

       pic2ps, pic2gif - convert picture files to other formats

       fb/pic2ps [ -c ] [ -h height ] [ input ]

       fb/pic2gif [ -i ] [ -l ] [ -b depth ] [ input ]

       Pic2ps  converts its input image (default standard input) into encapsu-
       lated PostScript, writing the result to standard output.  If the  input
       image  is  full-color,  its  luminance  is computed first, except under
       option -c, which  produces  output  suitable  for  a  color  PostScript
       printer.   Option  -h  sets  the  output  image  height in inches.  The
       default height is 3", to match the default height of the .BP  macro  in
       troff -mpictures.

       Pic2gif  converts  its input image (default standard input) into a Com-
       puserv GIF format file, writing the result to standard output.  It con-
       verts  only the first channel of the input image, which may yield wrong
       results -- use the -l flag or quantize(9.1)  or  some  other  dithering
       filter  to reduce color images to a single channel.  Option -i produces
       an interlaced output file.  Option -b sets the number of bits per pixel
       in the output file.  The default is 8, which is the maximum.  Option -l
       makes pic2gif compute the NTSC luminance of its  input.   If  pic2gif's
       input  contains  no  color  map, it assumes that it is a 256 grey shade
       monochrome image.
