       ppmtomitsu - convert a PPM image	to a Mitsubishi	S340-10	file


       [-sharpness val]

       [-enlarge val]

       [-media string]

       [-copy val]




       This program is part of Netpbm(1).

       ppmtomitsu  reads  a  PPM  image	as input and converts it into a	format
       suitable	to be printed by a Mitsubishi S340-10 printer,	or  any	 other
       Mitsubishi color	sublimation printer.

       The  Mitsubishi S340-10 Color Sublimation printer supports 24bit	color.
       Images of the available sizes take so long to transfer that there is  a
       fast method, employing a	lookuptable, that ppmtomitsu will use if there
       is a maximum of 256 colors in the image.	 ppmtomitsu will try to	 posi-
       tion  your image	to the center of the paper, and	will rotate your image
       for you if xsize	is larger than ysize.  If your image  is  larger  than
       the  media  allows, ppmtomitsu will quit	with an	error message. (We de-
       cided that the media were too expensive to have careless	users  produce
       misprints.)   Once  data	 transmission  has  started,  the job can't be
       stopped in a sane way without resetting the printer.  The  printer  un-
       derstands  putting  together  images in the printers memory; ppmtomitsu
       doesn't utilize this as pnmcat etc provide the same  functionality  and
       let you view the	result on-screen, too.	The S340-10 is the lowest com-
       mon denominator printer;	for higher  resolution	printers  there's  the
       dpi300  option.	The  other printers also support higher	values for en-
       large eg, but I don't think that's essential enough to warrant a	change
       in the program.

       For  proper results, the	input maxval must be 255.  Use pamdepth	to en-
       sure that it is.

       Before Netpbm 10.40 (September 2007), all Netpbm	PPM programs,  includ-
       ing  ppmtomitsu,	see a PBM image	as having maxval 1, so ppmtomitsu does
       not function properly with PBM input.  You can  use  ppmtoppm  together
       with  pamdepth  to  turn	 your PBM input	into maxval 255	PPM input that
       ppmtomitsu will use properly.

       -sharpness 1-4
	      "sharpness" designation.	Default	is  to use the current	sharp-

       -enlarge	1-3
	      Enlarge by a factor; Default is 1	(no enlarge)

       -media {A|A4|AS|A4S}
	      Designate	the media you're using.	 Default is 1184 x 1350, which
	      will fit on any media.  A	is 1216	x 1350,	A4 is 1184 x 1452,  AS
	      is  1216 x 1650 and A4S is 1184 x	1754.  A warning: If you spec-
	      ify a different  media  than  the	 printer  currently  has,  the
	      printer  will  wait until	you put	in the correct media or	switch
	      it off.

       -copy 1-9
	      The number of copies to produce.	Default	is 1.

	      Double the number	of allowed pixels for a	 S3600-30  Printer  in
	      S340-10 compatibility mode.  (The	S3600-30 has 300 dpi).

       -tiny  Memory-saving,  but  always  slow. The printer will get the data
	      line-by-line in 24bit. It's probably a good idea to use this  if
	      your machine starts paging a lot without this option.
