JP2 Samples for review

In our current workflow, we convert TIFs from our scanner(s) into 100% lossless JP2 using LuraTech's SDK. We're evaluating lower quality JP2, and your comments are appreciated for the following images. This sample was taken from a volume of Curtis' Botanical Magazine. There are 211 images in the volume.

Total file size for all uncompressed TIFFs: 4.39GB
Total file size for 100% JP2: 2.28GB
Total file size for 90% JP2: 660MB
Total file size for 80% JP2: 499MB
Total file size for 50% JP2: 160MB
Total file size for 30% JP2: 58.5MB

I like the 100% especially on the text pages. much easier to read when printed out the smaller sizes blur the type so certain letters are unreadable.

With respect to the illustrations, there is, in many situations, quite a bit of either compression or physical artifact (in general, among the collection) which can't probably be better alleviated/ameliorated without having to load from the tiff files I suspect. The 100% files are therefore the best alternative and there really are notable declines in quality moving down in the % examples you linked, particularly at the higher magnifcations. These are significant differences in my opinion and I hope you are able to persist with the higher quality version.

Amazing! Incredible idea. I never thought of converting TIFs files from scanner into 100% loss less JP2 files using LuraTech's SDK. I will certainly try it and hoping that it would work great for me as well :)
