Just having a squiz around the net for some help....not getting very far.

My question is: Why when I have a 70k file and merge it with another 70k tiff file that I end up with a Tiff image that is over 1mb? Is there a reason for this and how do I reduce the file size? This is causing me some bother.

What do you mean by "merge"?

It's quite easy to get results like that because TIFF supports many different compression schemes (and bit depths, and pixel organizations, etc.)

Most likely you are not recompressing with the same scheme or options as the original files.
