DaVince Tools uses the TIFF 6.0 Specification as its basis for TIFF file support. This specification specifies a number of file compression methods and image types. The following chart shows the compression methods supported by DaVince Tools:
Quick Mode
None (1) No Yes
PackBits(32773) No Yes
Modified Huffman(2) Yes Yes
Group 3 (3) Yes Yes
Group 4 (4) Yes Yes
LZW (5) Yes Version 3:Yes/All previous versions:No
JPEG (6, 7) No No

Quick mode is supported for a compression method when the compression method is supported by both TIFF and PDF specifications.  If a compression method is not supported in quick mode, then archive mode is automatically invoked.
Davince Tools has been creating PDF files since 1999.
