Hello guys!

Is it acceptable/advisable to Zip (or Rar) TIFF files in order to store them?

Do you lose any of the file information by doing that?

Do you degrade the file by Zipping, storing and then Unzipping it?

I hate to be able to store only 5 125MB TIFFs on one CD-R 700MB.

I would love to hear how you guys store your TIFFs. What media do you use?

Thank you.

Poppins
