Tiff File Compression

The below shown code I used to set the "CompressionCCITT4" for Tiff Image, while generating the code, I am getting the error message called "Invalid Parameter".

Rectify the error provide the alternate solution for the same.

ImageCodecInfo ici = getCodecForstring("TIFF");
Encoder myEncoder = Encoder.Compression;
EncoderParameters myEncoderParameters = new EncoderParameters(1);
EncoderParameter myEncoderParameter = new EncoderParameter(myEncoder, (long)EncoderValue.CompressionCCITT4);
myEncoderParameters.Param[0] = myEncoderParameter;

_img.Save(sSavePath, ici, myEncoderParameters);

I have tried the same for past 3 weeks, hope there is some bug with the compression type.

I change the color to black & white of tiff image. It changes only the color not the property.

due to this I was unable to set the EncoderValue.CompressionCCITT4 type.

provide the solution for the same.

Did you look here too?

Thanks, for your work on the same. I also tried the same activity, it will change the color of the layer not the color property.

Finally I got the solution, By setting the image quality with JPEG pixel format for the tiff image, the size get reduced.

ImageCodecInfo ici = getCodecForstring("TIFF");

ImageCodecInfo ici = getCodecForstring("JPEG");

by changing the parameter, my issue got solved.

I tried using this above solution but I couldnot save multipage tiff when I set it to JPEG pixel format. Please let me know if there is any other way to reduce the tiff file size
