Nconvert create image strip

Post by anil »

I want to convert a bunch of tiff images to a single image strip(panorama), horizontally, without affecting the original dimensions.
For example, if there are 3 tiff images with different sizes, they just need to be appended horizontally.
Please let me know the nconvert command to achieve this.
i am trying to use nconvert.exe -one_strip ...but not able to get the desired output.

i want the image strip to be in bmp format
--------------------------------------------------
nconvert -out bmp -one_strip *.tif

But it creates the individual bmp versions of the tif files but does not create the image strip.

Please advise.

I haven't used one_strip before and I'm getting the same issue with this script:

nconvert -one_strip -o Test.tif *.tif

OK -- 'strip' as Wikipedia 'Tagged_Image_File_Format' :

"A baseline TIFF image may be composed of one or more strips. A strip or band is a subsection of the image composed of one or more rows. Each strip is compressed independently and begins on a byte boundary. If the image height is not evenly divisible by the number of rows in the strip the last strip may contain fewer rows. If the strip definition tags are missing then the image is assumed to contain a single strip."
