Re: [OT] scanned files are large in size

I'm replying to the top-level of this thread because it's not a direct
reply to any particular message, but the thread reminded me of

I occasionally scan large piles of paperwork using an MFP belonging to a
local University. It emails me the results and has several options for
the format and quality.

What I wanted was lossless files, so I selected TIFF instead of JPEG or
PDF. But I later discovered that modern TIFF is a versatile container
format, and the printer was sending me JPEG-in-TIFF.
