Hi, I wish to decode a jbig2 image in a pdf. I see that ImageMagick understands CompressionMethod JBIG2, but not the format. is there an. None. However, we can consider it (or someone else can contribute code to support the format). Post a URL to a library with an API we can. convert -list compress B44 B44A BZip DXT1 DXT3 DXT5 Fax Group4 JBIG1 JBIG2 JPEG JPEG Lossless LosslessJPEG LZMA LZW None.

You might try all the “-compress” options to see which is the best. If we search a bit we find that this means the document uses Deflate or Zip as compression algorithm. Learn how your comment data is processed.

As I understand it, it surpasses the Group 4 compression which is also bi-tonal, and was designed for faxesand it should work very similar to the bi-tonal JB2 compression in DjVu. Perhaps PDF does not support raster compressed input file.

This time I intend to invest more time investigating and perfecting this process. You can test compression methods by converting imagemgaick tiff to another tiff and see if the file size changes.

ImageMagick as several other types of compression algorithms which it supports as can be seen via convert -list compress. I have a tiff. A new semester is about to begin, hence I again set out to organize lecture notes and scan them. Also the density will likely change the pdf file size. I just do not know. I might expect that the tif would be compressed before wrapping the vector shell around it.


When scanning documents, PDF acts as a container and the scanned images are stored as a binary string.

JBIG2 and JB2 encoders – ImageMagick

You could also try converting with -monochrome, but that will dither the output, but it might be smaller. Below taken from imagemagick documentation is a concise list of possible compression algorithms:.

The most interesting one, that appears there is JBIG2. This allows readable lecture notes in while preserving small size per page as you can see in Some Tips on Scanning Lecture Notes. Usage questions are like “How do I use ImageMagick to create drop shadows? Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email.

You premise is flawed. Notify me of new posts by email. Unless you really need to convert the format, you can just wrap your images in PDF wrappers without converting the compressed data. Despite the much lower resolution, the resulting file is actually a little bit larger and bit: This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. It looks like using ImageMagick and some smart filter, better color separation can be achieved, especially when notes are written with a pen with a non-black ink.


I’ll keep experimenting for now. The lossless DjVU creation command was ubig2 -a 0. I have a bunch of scanned monochrome images like this: DjVu is the best choice iimagemagick lossless compression, but the difference between lossy and lossless are perceptually negligible. But I do not know if that carries over to PDF. The just use the wrong tools for the job, imzgemagick the PDF produced is way too large.

I have also tried the depth option: However there are several other compression imagejagick that can be used, and each will have a different filter. However it does show when doing the following if you have installed the JBIG delegate: Email Required, but never shown. But I do not know if that is true.
