STIFF is a program that converts scientific FITS images to the TIFF format
for illustration purposes. The main features of STIFF are:
* Accurate reproduction of the original surface brightnesses and colours
* Automatic or manual contrast and brightness adjustments
* Automatic sky background intensity and colour balance
* Adjustable colour saturation
* Colour-friendly gamma correction capabilities
* One or three input channels: gray-scale or true colour output
* Output with 8 or 16 bits per component
* Pixel rebinning and x/y flip options
* Support for arbitrarily large input and output images on standard
hardware (BigTIFF support)
* Support for tiled, multiresolution pyramids
* Support for lossless and lossy compression methods
* Multi-threaded code with load-balancing to take advantage of multiple
cores and processors.
* XML VOTable-compliant output of meta-data.
