[Image-SIG] Compression for TIF files
Tue, 22 May 2001 12:30:01 -0600
I believe that the reason that PIL doesn't include LZW compression is a=
licensing issue... LZW must be licensed for "encoding", but not for
"decoding" (I think), similar to GIF. LZW is the only common compressi=
scheme for TIFF, although not the only one. TIFF also supports JPEG
compression, however it's not widely supported by other applications (s=
as Photoshop), so there hasn't been a big push to implement it.
Sorry... not very helpful I know.
