HI to all! I've found that files compessed with Group4 by libtiff are always larger than other that are made by another graphic software (e.g., by PaperPort or IrfanView). For example A4-size B/W tiff file made by IrfanVIew is about 30K in size while file made by libtiff from the same pixel array is about 130K. Is there any way to solve this problem? Thanx in advance.

Try setting the strip size to the height of the image. This will give you much better compression.
