I need to write multilayed TIFFs, with minimal problems opening the TIFFs with other viewers.

The TIFFs consist of a black and white main image, with one or more coloured images overlaid - each colour image is stored as a black and white image with the colour stored elsewhere. The images being dealt with are basically black and white with a bit of marker pen - compressing this way and using G4 on each image gets huge compression.

How would other people suggest I do what I'm trying to do?
