DESCRIPTION

This program is part of Netpbm(1).

ppmdither reads a PPM image as input, and applies dithering to it to reduce the number of colors used down to the specified number of shades for each primary. The default number of shades is red=5, green=9, blue=5, for a total of 225 colors. To convert the image to a binary rgb format suitable for color printers, use -red 2 -green 2 -blue 2.

You can do another kind of dither -- Floyd-Steinberg -- with pnmquant or pnmremap.
