'fax2png' extracts a specified page from a 1-bit black and white TIFF image, such as a fax, and efficiently converts it to PNG format without the performance overhead of netpbm-based solutions. It supports antialiasing (for attractive reductions to typical Web browser widths)and 90-degree-interval rotations and flips. The input file must be in TIFF format, and must contain one or more single-bit images (black and white); the package does not support color images.
