ABBYY FineReader lets you use the following compression methods:

  • ZIP — provides for no data losses and is used for images containing large sections of one color. For example, this method is used for screenshots and black-and-white images.
  • JPEG — used for gray and color images, for example, photos. This method provides for a high-density compression but leads to data losses and poorer image quality (blurred outlines and poor color palette).
  • CCITT Group 4 — provides for no data losses and is used for black-and-white images created in graphical programs or scanned images. The CCITT Group 4 compression is a widespread compression method applied to virtually all images.
  • Packbits — provides for no data losses and is used for scanned black-and-white images.
  • LZW — provides for no data losses and is used for graphics and gray images.
