Convert a multi-page TIFF to a PDF

I needed a hard copy of some legal documents from my last home sale.  The broker that managed said deal provided all the documents scanned in a single TIFF.  The oracle did not provide much guidance unless I wanted to install spyware or spend money for spyware.  I had the idea to use ImageMagick to possibly extract the images, and then I would create a PDF of each image, and then stitch the PDFs together to later print out.  As it turns out, ImageMagick already does everything I need.

$ convert –rotate 90 docs.tiff[18-20] docs.pdf

The above command extracts pages 19, 20, and 21 from docs.tiff, rotates the pages 90 degrees, and converts the output to PDF.
