TiffCompressOption Enumeration

Specifies the possible compression schemes for Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) bitmap images.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Imaging
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public enum TiffCompressOption
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
DefaultThe TiffBitmapEncoder encoder attempts to save the bitmap with the best possible compression schema.
NoneThe Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) image is not compressed.
Ccitt3The CCITT3 compression schema is used.
Ccitt4The CCITT4 compression schema is used.
LzwThe LZW compression schema is used.
RleThe RLE compression schema is used.
ZipZip compression schema is used.

The Ccitt3, Ccitt4, and Rle require that the PixelFormat value be set to BlackWhite. Setting the PixelFormat to any other value resets the Compression property value to Default.

The following example demonstrates how to use the Compression property.

FileStream stream = new FileStream("new.tif", FileMode.Create);
TiffBitmapEncoder encoder = new TiffBitmapEncoder();
TextBlock myTextBlock = new TextBlock();
myTextBlock.Text = "Codec Author is: " + encoder.CodecInfo.Author.ToString();
encoder.Compression = TiffCompressOption.Zip;
