Need a simple way to convert GeoTIFF images to JPEG

Written a simple python script to convert GeoTIFFS to JPEGS, simple linear contrast stretch doesn't work to well.

Trying a linear 95% stretch...still not great.

RGB->HSL, stretch L (linear 95%), HSL->RGB ...also not great!

Looking at gtviewer code suggests same stretch algorithm is being applied. Have tried "hard wiring" gtviewer scale parameters within python script and gives same image. This suggests that the histogram method in python script is not accurate enough, will implement a slow counting method.

Now have a working version of script, tested for small files (tifs of around 50MB) but may fall down on large tifs (ATM). Working version is GTIFF2JPEG_3

Has been tested on files upto 330MB and seems to work ok without crashing.

Have now implemented a method to handle larger tif files, and has worked for images upto 825MB. Not tested larger files.
