Is there a way to use convert to transform an image into an 8-bit bitmap?

1 Answer 1


Given the syntax:

convert [input-option] input-file [output-option] output-file

You might be able to accomplish the task as simply as:

convert file-to-convert -depth 8 output-file

Tho it may also be:

convert file-to-convert -depth 8bit output-file

You can find all the possible options on the convert man page. :)
