Subject: Re: tif file not comressing and when faxed have gray background
In reply to: andy dyble 's message, "tif file not comressing and when faxed have gray background" on 13:45:25 02/13/02 Wed

Hi Andy,

There are two things. First, download <a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.intervalsoftware.com/files/entifgr.zip">http://www.intervalsoftware.com/files/entifgr.zip</a> which has an updated EnTifGr.Dcu which fixes a problem in the original 1.1 release where the tiff compression property was not saved.

When scanning are you scanning in B/W?

I am not sure what the intention of,

> ImageFormat := ifGray16 ;
> TiffCompression := tcGroup3_1d ;


AssignFromDibHandle will create the image in the same format as returned by the scanner.

It seems you scanned image is grayscale. A B/W image should be about 10-80Kb when compressed with Group IV compression.

Best regards,
