Thanks for this overview of another tiff application, Ed.

We are using tiff files to store bitmap images that are downloaded to our "platesetters" - image recorders that directly expose aluminum printing plates. I thought we had large files, typically 1GB to 5GB uncompressed. Fortunately, there is usually a lot of whitespace, line art and text in these files so they compress well with G4 (up to 100 times). We aren't in any real danger of coming up against the big file problem, but I'm interested in following this discussion.
