Is CCITT TIFF output supported?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there is any way to save images in a black/white TIFF encoding directly (such as CCITT 3 or 4).

I've got a bunch of B/W TIFF images compressed with CCITT 4. I can open and edit them fine in Paint.Net, but when I save them they are converted to full R/G/B/A images using LZW compression. This results in images going from ~100kb to roughly 1MB.

... not high priority for Paint.NET - but indeed it's an important fileformat. I was happy for having fount an imagesoftware that did not affect the common and the private tifftags when manipulating the image. Unfortunately (important for my daily work) I'm not able to select another compression algorithm than LZW when save the new tiffimage.

Besides: Paint.NET is able to open tiff files, doesn't matter how they are compressed. So the several algorithms are implemented anyway. It seems to me that it's only the GUI, that does not support a sophisticated "save as", isn't it?
