Converting TIFF files to jpeg and the jpg file is larger
by toc-tom - 7/26/12 10:03 AM
I am trying to convert some TIFF files to JPG format to decrease the file size. The original TIFF files are about 3,600 Kb and the dimensions are 19,024 X 14,396. I was hoping to make the file size smalled so I could work with them easier and send them in an email.
I found a thread here about using Irfanview to convert files http://forums.cnet.com/7723-6637_102-119216/converting-tiff-files-to-jpeg/ I downloaded Irfanview did the normal process, opened > saved as jpg format and the first file I saved went from 3,410 Kb to 21,042 Kb. Could I be doing something wrong or is there something going on with these files that I don't understand?
