Has anyone written a simple script to convert the virtually useless 16-bit Molecular Dynamics Tiff
images produced by their scanners to an 8-bit format? I am not a raster image programer so I do
not comprehend the vagueries of Sam Lefflers libtiff functions. However, there is a very nice
program in his package which reads a TIFF image and copies it back in a different format. All one needs
to do is convert each 16-bit word into an 8-bit word (i.e. word/256??). MD supplies a PC routine to do
this however it is SLOWWWWWW. I would rather run it on my SUN. Thanks in advance.
