    Hi,
    I have createt large Tif files (150MByte) with -colorspace cmyk -flatten -compress LZW to make sure, I have only the four Channels and a working compression. (I recompiled gm with lzw enabled before).
    When I load this tif file to photoshop and save a copy, Tif with lzw, the copy is only 2/3 of the size, around 100MB
    I cannot find a reason for this. Can you?
    I would love to have the smaller size in the first place.
    Greeting Roland

     
  • Please execute 'tiffinfo' on the original TIFF file and the version written by Photoshop and post the output here.  There are various factors which might result in a smaller file size.
