enblend [options] [--output=IMAGE] INPUT...


Blend INPUT images into a single IMAGE.

INPUT... are image filenames or response filenames. Response filenames start with an "@" character.

Common options:

-V, --version
output version information and exit
pre-assemble non-overlapping images
-h, --help
print this help message and exit
-l, --levels=LEVELS
limit number of blending LEVELS to use (1 to 29); negative number of LEVELS decreases maximum; "auto" restores the default automatic maximization
-o, --output=FILE
write output to FILE; default: "a.tif"
-v, --verbose[=LEVEL]
verbosely report progress; repeat to increase verbosity or directly set to LEVEL
-w, --wrap[=MODE]
wrap around image boundary, where MODE is "none", "horizontal", "vertical", or "both"; default: none; without argument the option selects horizontal wrapping
checkpoint partial results
set compression of output image to COMPRESSION, where COMPRESSION is: "deflate", "jpeg", "lzw", "none", "packbits", for TIFF files and 0 to 100, or "jpeg", "jpeg-arith" for JPEG files, where "jpeg" and "jpeg-arith" accept a compression level
set the layer selector ALGORITHM; default: "all-layers"; available algorithms are: "all-layers": select all layers in all images; "first-layer": select only first layer in each multi-layer image; "largest-layer": select largest layer in each multi-layer image; "no-layer": do not select any layer from any image;
set one or more KEY-VALUE pairs

Extended options:

image cache BLOCKSIZE in kilobytes; default: 2048KB
-c, --ciecam
use CIECAM02 to blend colors; disable with "--no-ciecam"
use the ICC profile from PROFILE-FILE instead of sRGB
-d, --depth=DEPTH
set the number of bits per channel of the output image, where DEPTH is "8", "16", "32", "r32", or "r64"
associated-alpha hack for Gimp (before version 2) and Cinepaint
use graphics card to accelerate seam-line optimization
manually set the size and position of the output image; useful for cropped and shifted input TIFF images, such as those produced by Nona
set image CACHESIZE in megabytes; default: 1024MB

Mask generation options:

use main seam finder ALGORITHM, where ALGORITHM is "nearest-feature-transform" or "graph-cut"; default: "nearest-feature-transform"
use ALGORITHM for calculation of the difference image, where ALGORITHM is "max-hue-luminance" or "delta-e"; LUMINANCE-WEIGHT and CHROMINANCE-WEIGHT define the weights of lightness and color; default: delta-e:1: 1
--coarse-mask[=FACTOR] shrink overlap regions by FACTOR to speedup mask
generation; this is the default; if omitted FACTOR defaults to 8
generate mask at full image resolution; use e.g. if overlap regions are very narrow
(deprecated) smooth the difference image prior to seam-line optimization with a Gaussian blur of RADIUS; default: 0 pixels
turn on mask optimization; this is the default
turn off mask optimization
set the optimizer's weigths for distance and mismatch; default: 8:1
set LENGTH of single seam segment; append "%" for relative value; defaults: 4 for coarse masks and 20 for fine masks
set annealing parameters of optimizer strategy 1; defaults: 0.75:7000:5:32
set search RADIUS of optimizer strategy 2; default: 25 pixels
save generated masks in TEMPLATE; default: "mask-%n.tif"; conversion chars: "%i": mask index, "%n": mask number, "%p": full path, "%d": dirname, "%b": basename, "%f": filename, "%e": extension; lowercase characters refer to input images uppercase to the output image
use existing masks in TEMPLATE instead of generating them; same template characters as "--save-masks"; default: "mask-%n.tif"
--visualize[=TEMPLATE] save results of optimizer in TEMPLATE; same template
characters as "--save-masks"; default: "vis-%n.tif"

Enblend accepts arguments to any option in uppercase as well as in lowercase letters.
