Which file type is recommended for archiving images?
Posted on 2005-04-18
I would like to know which file type I've to use for the following image types :
- Black and white (ex. : word documents or hand written documents)
- gray scale (ex. : pictures)
- color (ex. : color pictures)
For black and white I think tiff can be a good, lossless solution... but for the others I don't really know. (maybe jpeg 2000, but I'm not sure it's a good idea because I need to archive those files and I'm not sure that over 10 years Jpeg2000 will still exit)
I need the best ratio between quality and size.
