configuration for smaller TIFFs

Post by quicoli » Thu Feb 13, 2014 1:55 pm

Friends,

what configuration properties do you suggest for generating small size TIFF files?
change resolution to 200dpi?

I would like to optimize the generated file size for black-white, gray scale and color images...

what do you suggest?

thanks!

Hello Paulo,

CCITT4 compression can be used for the best compression of black-white images.

LZW compression can be used for the good lossless compression of gray or color images.
ZIP compression can be used for the best lossless compression of gray or color images.
JPEG compression can be used for the best lossy compression of gray or color images.

VintaSoftTwain.NET SDK automatically detects the best compression for TIFF image if you will set value of the Device.AcquiredImages.TiffCompression property to TiffCompression.Auto (default value).

Best regards, Alexander
