I’ve rendered an image that is 4960x3508 pixels. When I save it as a TIFF file by pressing F3 it saves perfectly well but the file size is much smaller than I expected. The actual resolution of the image seems to be as I would expect, but it is only about 1.8MB and I was expecting a file of about 50MB. If I open the image in GIMP and save it as a TIFF then the file is 51MB as I would have expected.
Can anyone explain what is going on? I’m concerned that the files are being compressed in some way.
I forgot to say my OS is 32 bit Windows Vista.
