Photo Editing

By egsiegmund ·
I am using MGI PhotoSuite III to edit old pictures to remove stains, creases etc and saving the result in a .TIF file. The original picture was scanned and saved as a .TIF file. The original scanned in picture before editing was 46.7Mb. After editing the saved .TIF file was then 146Mb. How could such an increase in size happen and will that be a problem when trying to have a 5x7 photograph printed at photo shop?

It's probably a result of the editing tools. Touch up is like adding vector graphics to your photo. You may find BMP results much better as it should flatten any vector paths added.

A good tool I use for erasing wrinkles and general touch up is Adobe's Photoshop ELEMENTS. It's basically a simplified Photoshop and has a phenominal tool called CURE. Unlike other touchup tools it offers color copy without the need for accurate pixel by pixel editing and also retains ALL texturing whereas most tools loose texture with the applied touch ups.

It will most likely create a much smaller tiff and save you hours of manual edits.
