 Post subject: Windows 7 TIFF Compression: LZW to G3/G4

Greetings,

So, I work in IT, and a department had a PC running Windows XP that would scan documents as TIFFs with G4 compression. The PC was upgraded to Windows 7, and now it scans documents with LZW compression. Unfortunately, a proprietary script/executable we run needs the TIFFs to be compressed as G3/G4 images (and we do not have permission to alter the proprietary executable). I have been unable to find a way to adjust the Windows scanner settings to compress as G3/G4, instead of LZW.

Does anyone know if this is possible? None of the scanning software we have available compresses TIFFs, which seems odd. If there's free software out there that can do it, that'll work. Since the department that will be doing this is not tech-savvy, it'd be best if we can keep it within the default Windows scanning interface.

Thanks!
