Got kind of stuck here.
I can extract the first page of a multi-paged tiff using tiffcp file.tif,0 firstpage.tif
But what I actually need in the end are all pages except that first one. I tried
tiffcp file.tif,1-99 restof.tif
"Expected a, separated image # list"
is the result.
I know I could tiffsplit file.tif.
But that is very inelegant and time and space-consuming. My tiffs have many pages and I'd get all those xaa* written to hard disk and later read back to re-assemble the remaining 98 out of 99 with tiffcp
Processing-wise, what would be wrong to let tiffcp read an option tiffcp file.tif,1-99 restof.tif?
I guess it would work properly if I typed similarly tiffcp file.tif,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,.....,99 restof.tif
Or is there another command or option that I miss?
