I agree with what Dan says here. It's probably better to make an explicit choice. If the user saves as TIFF 6 and the file goes over 4 Gig, we (Photoshop) can fail and tell the user that the file is too large for TIFF and they should try BigTIFF. Yes, going back and cleaning up (either starting with 32 or 64) is possible, but slow and the user generally won't understand why their image works with some applications and not others. Chris PS.
