Thread: Batch Converting LZW Compressed TIF Images

    Default Batch Converting LZW Compressed TIF Images

    HI there,

    I have a folder with a ton of tiff files in various subfolders. I want to batch convert only the tiff files that have the compression of LZW. Does IrfanView do that?

    Not possible as far as I know.

    You can only convert all of them using the same compression method (or none). IrfanView can detect the file type after it opens a TIF file (See the Image Information dialogue), but the Batch dialogue does not detect the file type when adding filenames to the list of files to convert.
