Note to self: splitting up a multi-page TIFF file

From the ImageMagick manual, of all places:

Multi-Page TIFF

If you want to split a multi-page tiff into separate pages, IM may have problems as it will still use up a lot of memory to hold previous pages even if you use a command like...

convert "a.tif[i]" b%03d.tif

This might be regarded as a bug, or perhaps a future improvement.

The better solution may be the non-IM "tiffsplit" program.
