Re: filmscanners: (anti)compression?



Although I haven't used it (some members have/do), PNG probably offers the 
best compression in a "lossless" format--according to the chart that Bert 
posted. Photoshop *does* offer that. Whether the format will be around in 20 
years is another matter. :-)

Best regards--LRA
