converts a Microsoft Windows Device Independent Bitmap image file to
If several input BMP files are being specified the multipage
output file will be created. By default, the
image is created with data samples packed (PlanarConfiguration=1),
compressed with the PackBits algorithm (Compression=32773),
and with each strip no more than 8 kilobytes.
These characteristics can overridden, or explicitly specified
with the options described below.
Specify a compression scheme to use when writing image data:
for no compression,
for the PackBits compression algorithm (the default),
for the baseline JPEG compression algorithm,
for the Deflate compression algorithm,
for Lempel-Ziv & Welch.
Write data with a specified number of rows per strip;
by default the number of rows/strip is selected so that each strip
is approximately 8 kilobytes.
