28 Aug 2004: Trying to figure out a way to get image histograms and store them as 8-bit images since my camera does not have the histogramming ability.
imagemagick allows me to generate the histograms, but it utputs it in 24-bit mode (even when I use the -depth 8 option):
convert foo.jpg foo.histogram;convert foo.histogram -depth 8 hfoo.jpg
I can save them as 8-bit in xv, but I want to automate the procedure.
Okay, the following works:
convert foo.jpg foo.histogram
convert foo.histogram foo.xbm
convert foo.xbm hfoo.jpg
wrote nirakar:perldir/histogramer.pl to write histogram jpegs in exif dir and link them into an index file
