vipsedit(1)                                                        vipsedit(1)




NAME

       vipsedit - edit header of a vips image file


SYNOPSIS

       vipsedit [OPTION...] vipsfile


DESCRIPTION

       vipsedit  alters a VIPS image file's header. This is useful for setting
       the resolution, for example.

       The options are:

         -x, --xsize=N       set Xsize to N
         -y, --ysize=N       set Ysize to N
         -b, --bands=N       set Bands to N
         -f, --format=F      set BandFmt to F (eg. uchar)
         -i, --interpretation=I
                             set Interpretation to I (eg. xyz)
         -c, --coding=C      set Coding to C (eg. labq)
         -X, --xres=R        set Xres to R pixels/mm
         -Y, --yres=R        set Yres to R pixels/mm
         -u, --xoffset=N     set Xoffset to N
         -v, --yoffset=N     set Yoffset to N
         -e, --setext        replace extension block with stdin

       Be very careful when changing Xsize, Ysize, BandFmt or Bands.  vipsedit
       does no checking!



EXAMPLES

       To set the Xsize to 512 and Bands to 6:

         vipsedit --xsize=512 --bands=6 fred.v

       or

         vipsedit -x 512 -b 6 fred.v

       Extract the XML metadata from an image with vipsheader(1), edit it, and
       reattach with vipsedit(1)

         vipsheader -f getext fred.v | sed s/banana/pineapple/ |  vipsedit  -e
       fred.v



RETURN VALUE

       returns 0 on success and non-zero on error.
