TIFF is indeed a very good archival format, as it offers lossless compression, the full range of EXIF metadata, 48bit colour if memory does not betray me, support for a wide range of colour formats (RGB, CMYK, LAB,…). And patent free.

Where is that emoji for a solar powered submarine when you need it ?

Re: WebP and images in general

Taking it all in. Thanks.

After using the ImageOptim tool Pete suggested, my files dropped in size (that sure is an easy app to use). I wonder if WebP formats would even compare after that.

That would make an interesting test.

In the meantime, ImageOptim! (Or whatever it’s called.)

Btw, I don’t deal with high-quality images. I’ve never been able to use a camera to save my life, so needless to say don’t produce anything photoblog worthy. Thus I really don’t care about fine lines and shadows and whatever that some people need to care about. Just need to communicate a little sumpm’, sumpn’ with a screen crop or old thing in public domain, whatever.

Re: WebP and images in general

After reading this thread I think I’ll just stick with JPEG’s and PNG’s. They’ve always worked just fine for me.

ImageOptim is an amazing app. I use it regularly on my images before uploading them.
