Merged TIF file size is more larger than the sum of single TIF files
I am merging 10 tif (each 5 KB) files into one Multi tif file using ImageIO of java api. But after merging the finaly file size is very huge than the sum of the 10 individual pages.. Example 10 * 5 KB = 50 KB but I am getting more than 700 KB etc... May be the format should be changed. I am using the "tif" format as follows.
Iterator writers = ImageIO.getImageWritersByFormatName("tif");
ImageWriter imageWriter = (ImageWriter) writers.next();
File destinationFile = new File(finalDestinationFilePath);
Is there any compressed format to minimized the size of final merged file.
