Hi, I'm trying to convert a large 16 bits/sample TIFF image stack into an 8 bits/sample stack. (Truncating the least significant byte of each pixel.)

I'm starting to look at imagemagick, but I'm wondering if anyone has a favorite tool or procedure that could help me work with this file.

ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick should make this very easy to accomplish.

   gm convert infile.tiff -depth 8 outfile.tiff
