NAME

ppmtopj - convert a portable pixmap to an HP PaintJet file

SYNOPSIS

ppmtopj [-gamma val] [-xpos val] [-ypos val] [-back dark|lite] [-rle] [-center] [-render none|snap|bw|dither|diffuse|monodither|monodiffuse|clusterdither|monoclusterdither] [ppmfile]

DESCRIPTION

Reads a portable pixmap as input and converts it into a format suitable to be printed by an HP PaintJet printer.

For best results, the input file should be in 8-color RGB form; i.e. it should have only the 8 binary combinations of full-on and full-off primaries. You could get this by sending the input file through ppmquant -map with a map file such as:

Or else you could use use ppmdither -red 2 -green 2 -blue 2.

OPTIONS
