NAME

pnmpad - add borders to portable anymap  

SYNOPSIS

pnmpad [-verbose] [-white|-black]
[[[-width=width [-halign=ratio]] |
[-left=leftpad] [-right=rightpad]]]
[[[-height=height [-valign=ratio]] |
[-top=toppad] [-bottom=botpad]]]
[pnmfile]

All options can be abbreviated to their shortest unique prefix. You may use two hyphens instead of one to designate an option. You may use either white space or an equals sign between an option name and its value.

 

DESCRIPTION

Reads a PNM image as input. Outputs a PNM image that is the input image plus black or white borders of the sizes specified.

If you just need to convert an image to a certain size regardless of the original dimensions, pnmcut with the -pad option may be a better choice.

 

OPTIONS

Set pad color.

-left leftpad
-right rightpad

HISTORY

Before February 2002,
pnmpad had a different option syntax which was less expressive and not like conventional Netpbm programs. That syntax is still understood by pnmpad for backward compatibility, but not documented or supported for future use.
