Hi Laurie,

Is it not lzw compression instead of lwz?  In any case, does the amount of
reduction in the file size using lzw compression vary considerably with the
content?  The reason I ask is that I just compared a scanned photograph of
3591 X 5472 pixel size saved in several formats.  The results were:

TIFF                            36,498 kb
TIFF with lwz compression       36, 523 kb
JPG @ Photoshop level 12        17,633 kb

Your comment that lzw compressed TIFF files are as small as JPGs made me
wonder if you are working with graphic files and if they offer better
compression than photos.
