How to save to TIFF with CCITT Group 4 compression

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by Dennis Q. Wilson, Mar 11, 2006.

  1. My questions are two: First, is there any way to save to TIFF using
    CCITT Group 4 compression under Photoshop?

    And even if Photoshop doesn't permit this, is there any graphics
    program that'll let me save a document to Group 4 TIFF using some color
    other than white for the background?

    Thanks to any and all who can shed a little light here.

    I have an unfinished plugin[1] which uses libtiff
    ( to support a wider range of TIFF formats.
    Currently reading is implemented, writing wouldn't be very difficult to
    add. How badly do you want it? :)

    Libtiff also includes tools which can recompress your TIFFs as G4 (see

    hi dennis,

    up to windows 2000 you can use "imaging".

    but, imho, tiff g4 is a fax compression so u will only be able to save black
    n' white.
