          int $treeDepth, bool $dither, bool $measureError )

Parameters: This function accept five parameters as mentioned above and described below:

  • $numColors: It specifies the number of the colors.
  • $colorspace: It specifies the colorspace.
  • $treeDepth: It specifies the depth of tree.
  • $dither: It specifies whether to allow dither or not.
  • $measureError: It specifies whether to measure the image differences error on not.
