Compressing 100s of Multipage Tifs

Posted on 2009-02-18

We have received hundreds of mutipage uncompressed tifs. I would like to compress these and still keep the tif format.

What would be the easiest way to do this? Hopefully some batch program that will do it unattended.

    Both Infranview ( and Photoshop have powerful batch features that will let you create a script that will do this unattended.
    I'm sorry that you question has gone so long without being answered.
    Unfortunately I am at a computer right now that does not have either program installed.
    I could talk your through it, but need to check on detail first.
    As soon as I get to my studio, I'll give a step-by step.
    In a nutshell, you start recording a new Action. Then go through the steps of saving one of your TIFF files with the amount of compression that you want. Then close the TIFF file and stop recording.
    With the action recorded, open the Batch command and run your action. The Batch command will let you point to an entire folder (and subfolders) of files to process and it will let you save them to a new folder.
    You basicly turn it on and let it run.
    I'll give you more info later this morning.

    Sorry about the late response.
    I purchased a tiff resizer program that was pretty much drag and drop.
    Thanks for the link to the IrfanView though. I will check it out.
