Support compressed TIFF output

Postby unangstdt » Sat Aug 26, 2017 12:53 am

TIFF images compressed using LZW are significantly smaller than uncompressed TIFF images. The ratio improves as you increase the ppi at which you scan the image, which makes it very valuable for high-res scans. LZW is now royalty free, and source code for it is readily available on the web to perform the compression. It's annoying to have to run a batch compression using someone else's tools. Please implement this feature.
