Hi All,

I'm running CS3 on a big Mac (I just scrapped off the special sauce and plugged it in.. )

A client asked me to submit files today in the TIFF format. I did a "save as" on a 300 PPI jpeg and chose TIFF as the file type (see Picture #1)...all well and good.

I then clicked save and got a new dialog box asking me for (among other things) IBM PC or Macintosh byte order (see third choice down in the dialog box in Picture #2)

The first time I did this I chose IBM PC byte order and could still reopen the file on my Mac so I'm trying to understand which choice should I make in the future and what is the difference between the two byte order choices.

Any help or information is appreciated.

Steve Sint
