Where can I find a good introduction to bitmaps



Jpg or png should get you smaller than tiff

VB.NET - Image compression

Today png is much more popular than tiff so if you re writing files outside of your own data store png would be a more common choice and you d need to work through nsimagerep to get there

Best practice of storing and retrieving an NSImage in binary

Digital photographers use image file formats capable of reproducing a greater range of colors such as tiff raw or the lossy jpeg which is more suitable for compressing photographs;the png format is a popular alternative to gif images since the png format uses better compression techniques and does not have a limit of 256 colors but pngs do not support animations
