Convert images

convert from 16bit to red+green channel

convert Mars_8k_16bit.tif -depth 24 mars24.rgb
convert -size 8192x4096 -depth 8 rgb:mars24.rgb mars_redgreen.png

convert DDS to PNG

convert Mars-normalmap_8k.png

1 resize (sample) very large image file

convert -debug cache -limit area 1GB  /Users/rick/Downloads/Mars_MGS_MOLA_DEM_mosaic_global_463m.tif -sample 4096x2048 test.tiff

2 create redgreen gradient palette 64k wide

convert -size 10x65535  -rotate -90  gradient:red-green  redgreen.png
# black-yellow
convert -size 1x65535 -rotate -90   gradient:black-yellow blackyellow.png

3 lookup colors in palette (not sure yet if it solves my problem)

convert -interpolate bilinear /Users/rick/Downloads/mars-8k-16bpp-bump.tiff redgreen.png -clut -depth 8 out.png


convert -size 1x65535 -rotate -90   gradient:black-yellow blackyellow.png
convert -interpolate bilinear Mars_8k_Disp_v001.tif blackyellow.png -clut -depth 8 out.png

Convert multiple jpg’s into bmp’s

for i in *.jpg; do sips -s format bmp $i --out ../clouds-201509-bmp/$i.bmp;done

Resize batch

first height, then width!

  for i in *.jpg; do sips -z 1024 2048 $i --out ../clouds-201509-2k/$i;done

create gradient

convert -size 100x300 gradient:#000-#f00 gradient:#f00-#ff0 gradient:#ff0-#fff gradient:#fff-#0ff gradient:#0ff-#00f gradient:#00f-#000 -append lut.png
