I'm trying to burn a hi resolution image 24.7mb .tif to cd...but after dragging it thru PSP, it's only 707kb. I want to make this image into a slide and project it without pixelization. I thought I should probably save it as a .tif after editing...but now, I'm not so sure. Not very familiar with this file type...Anyone help out there? Thanks

Why run it through PSP? Just burn the file to a CD. PSP is probably saving it as a JPEG or god knows what else. Just make sure you're not inadvertently resizing, compressing, or saving as a different file format.

I have to run it thru an photo editor to get it the way I need it. I'm reading up on it now...and it looks like I may save it as a 2.4mb jpg

You generally dont want to save something destined for print as a JPEG. PSP should allow you to save as a TIFF.

I just contacted the company I'm going to use and they said to save it as a .tif or highest quality .jpg, .zip it up and send it.
I think where I got confused is when I posterized it in PSP and thusly removed a ton of info in it. It's ended up at 707kb in the .tif format

Sounds too small to be a decent sized TIFF.

You're right. I just compared the edited .tif at 707kb to a saved hi-quality 2.4mb .jpg and it's missing a lot. Somehow, PSP is doing something to it when saving it as a .tif...Back to square 1

I've never been a fan of PSP. Gotta be a simple as mis-saving it somehow. Double check all your steps.

Well, I've found that everytime I save a file type like .tif or whatever then compress it in winzip, it loses some of it's detail when opened. I've decided to go with a winzip bmp because I can't detect any loss.
Thanks
