Converting to PDF might be another option, although they won't be embedded in the website. If you want people to view them with their own "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer," then you can just put the .tif files on there as links and they can Save or Open from there. If you want them viewable on the website within the browser, then yes I'd go with JPG w/ less compression (than whatever made them unbearable).

Another good idea Adam. Also, this way, the users also gets a copy of the Records as well.

There you go Chuck, lots of options and possabilities to play with. You can reduce the file size considerably using the Jpeg format and still have a very good quality picture that is very readable. Alternatively, Adam's suggestions of using the PDF format makes a lot of sense and gives very quick download times.

Thanks for all the input everyone! I'll give some of these suggestions a try and see how it works.

Sorry it's taken me so long to say thanks. I've been on the road all week.
