tiffcompress [-c compression] -o output file1 file2 ...
tiffcompress concatenates and reformats the TIFF images in the input files (file1, file2, etc.) creating a new output TIFF file.
Arguments to -c can be a hex number (prefixed by 0x), an octal number (prefixed by 0), or a decimal number (no prefix). Compression may be one of the following values:
1 - no compression;
2 - CCITT Group 3 1-D Modified Huffman with no EOL codes;
3 - CCITT Group 3 1-D Modified Huffman with EOL codes and no padding;
0x43 - CCITT Group 3 1-D Modified Huffman with byte-aligned EOL codes; or
32773 - PackBits compression.
-o output Specifies the output file.
The default compression used by Faximum for TIFF files it creates is 0x43 (this is compliant with the requirements of TIFF Class F files).
Some graphics or word processing programs cannot handle all forms of compression. WordPerfect for example, cannot handle type 0x43 but can handle compression types 1 and 2. When in doubt, try compression type 1.
