imginfo - obtain information about image files
imginfo [-gui] [-nofork] [-verbose] img-file[:index] ...
imginfo prints information about image files with formats supported by
the ImageVision Library. The information includes: image dimensions in
pixels, page size, data type, dimension order, color model, minimum and
maximum pixel values, file format, data compression and image description
if available. The following command line options are allowed:
-gui Runs in a graphical user interface mode that shows the
information in a separate window, along with a reduced view of
the image data. In this mode, only the first file argument is
-nofork Specifies that the application should run in the foreground,
when invoked from the shell. The default is to fork and run in
the background during startup. This is only relevant when -gui
-verbose This option gives a more detailed description of the image
files; verbose is the default when only a single image file
argument is specified. When more than one file argument is
supplied, the default is to print only a single line of
information, giving the image file type and size.
In addition the standard X Window command line arguements like -geometry
and -iconic are recognized.
The optional index after a file name is useful on multi-resolution images
like Photo CD, to show information only on the desired sub-image. By
default information for all sub-images will be listed. In graphical mode
the information for each sub-image is selected via a multi-chioce button.
imginfo understands the following X resources:
Specifies the preferred size and location of the imgview window.
If specified as True then imginfo will behave as if the command line
switch of the same name had been specified.
The supported image file formats depend on which file formats are
currently installed. The installed formats can be listed with the
imgview(1), imgcopy(1), imgworks(1), imgformats(1)
