NAME

ra_pr - convert RADIANCE picture to/from pixrect rasterfile

SYNOPSIS

ra_pr [ -d ][ -b ][ -c ncolors ][ -g gamma ][ -e +/-stops ] input [ output ]
ra_pr -r [ -g gamma ][ -e +/-stops ] [ input [ output ] ]

DESCRIPTION

Ra_pr converts between RADIANCE and pixrect rasterfile formats. In the default mode, a RADIANCE picture is converted to a pixrect rasterfile of the same horizontal and vertical dimensions with 8-bits per pixel. The -d option turns off dithering. The -b option converts the image to black and white, for improved quality on greyscale monitors. Only with this option can the input be taken from stdin. The -c option allows fewer than 256 colors. The -g option specifies the exponent used in gamma correction; the default value is 2.2. An exponent of 1.0 turns gamma correction off. The -e option specifies an exposure compensation in f-stops (powers of two). Only integer stops are allowed, for efficiency. The -r option invokes a reverse conversion, from a pixrect rasterfile to a RADIANCE picture. If the output file is missing, the standard output is used.
