NAME

pnmdepth - change the maxval in a portable anymap

SYNOPSIS

pnmdepth newmaxval [pnmfile]

DESCRIPTION

Reads a portable anymap as input. Scales all the pixel values, and writes out the image with the new maxval. Scaling the colors down to a smaller maxval will result in some loss of information.

Be careful of off-by-one errors when choosing the new maxval. For instance, if you want the color values to be five bits wide, use a maxval of 31, not 32.
