ppmdither - ordered dither for color images |
ppmdither [-dim dimension] [-red shades] [-green shades] [-blue shades] [ppmfile] |
Reads a portable pixmap as input, and applies dithering to it to reduce the number of colors used down to the specified number of shades for each primary. The default number of shades is red=5, green=9, blue=5, for a total of 225 colors. To convert the image to a binary rgb format suitable for color printers, use -red 2 -green 2 -blue 2. The maximum number of colors that can be used is 256 and can be computed as the product of the number of red, green and blue shades. |
