I see, thank you.


But if a small file is saved with BigTIFF format, then the viewing software
still must support BigTIFF, correct?

ie. can BigTIFF be used for files that are smaller than 4GB due to the
compression?

Absolutely, you can encode a 100 byte file as BigTIFF, it's just a file
format. Actually there is some wisdom in producing all TIFF files as BigTIFF
regardless of size as this helps to ensure beforehand that the workflows
using those files are prepared to work with large files.
