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.

Download a free windows tiff tag viewer application here:

This should give you a clear view of the difference between the source files and the destination file. If you're still unsure at that stage, use the 'Copy tags as text' option to paste the tag dumps in a follow-up mail, someone is surely going to explain.

I dont even know if this list is still active so could you forward any ideas onto survey@lodewyk.com.au

tiff@remotesensing.org is alive and kicking.
