TIFF versus PSD file

Hi All,

From a RAW format, which should i use when saving a "developed" file? I just notice the TIFF file is bigger than the PSD file.

I just want to use a minimal file size as possible without loosing any details.

Thanks a lot.

You can try a Tiff with LZW compression setting. It's a lossless file compression ulike JPG.

Does anybody use the new JPG 2000 format from Pegasus, PG2. It's supose to have a very high compression and almost lossless. I also heard it does not work with most browsers though.

Something to consider might be Photoshop's Camera Raw plugin that also includes JPG 2000. I don't have it yet but the idea of being able to import a Raw file directly into Photoshop must have some exciting advantages.
