I can't find a way to enable TIFF compression in the files produced by batch export in Canon Digital Photo Professional (currently version 4.2). This means that the generated TIFF files are far larger than I think they need to be. So I have a few questions on this subject:
- Is there any way to enable lossless TIFF compression in Canon Digital Photo Professional?
- If not, have Canon explained why they don't support TIFF compression?
- Do professional photographers tend to maintain their TIFF library without compression?
By the way, I'm talking about 8-bit TIFF files (because I keep the RAW originals alongside them). I have seen that this quick test suggests that compression is actually pointless for 16-bit TIFF files.
