Hi Rob,

It depends what compression you use. Many tiff viewers support different compression. Envision uses libtiff, www.libtiff.org and has a fairly complete compression support.

JPG compression in TIFF has been quite confusing. There was the original spec which had problems, and was then revised. Envision uses the revised spec (latest), but some viewers like Imaging for Windows uses the previous version.

When using JPG compression in TIFF, it is not possible to change the compression level.

Best regards,
