Re: [gembud] [GEMPAK #YUD-318283]: help

I'll take the steps to have GEMPAK output png..
I'm sure now my gif to png final is loosing some detail

  Jeff, Gerry, Michael et al, 

  I provided a PNG device driver with the GEMPAK distribution, being built 
under 
  $GEMPAK/source/driver/active/png 

  This is using the "gf" driver imaging, so "png" does require the X display as 
does the gf driver. 

  In the interim since, boutell.com made the gd library available (which is the 
key component of the "gif" driver 
  that runs without an X display) with necessary updates to support png (and 
jpg) so I can send you the steps needed to make a png driver 
  that is X independent. Download the GD library from http://libgd.org.

  so true..
  I was using the images from the GOES server, which is in TIFF,
  the using ImageMagick to combine the overlay's and convert to jpg and png

  be nice if GEMPAK had png or jpg support ..... hint hint....

  IIRC, a little script-foo with ImageMagick's convert should do the trick
  'til the TIFF driver is back in action.
