CD-R's you can put a image tiff file around 180MB on, I want to store all my digital Artwork onto CD-R's incase my computer crashes.

in term of capability, all CDRs are the same, but quality may be different

is there any reason you need to keep files in Tiff format?

Most (if not all) CDRs are now 80 minutes or 700mbs. Although I have never seen a tiff file to be 180mb but if that is correct then you should be able to get 3 of them on one CD.

lol thanks guys, sorry maybe I should of worded it better, basically just wanted to know of its capacity in MB and of course like the idiot I am only read the 80mins bit and missed the 700mbs bit , so they should be fine for what I need to them for.

Yeah I work with Digital Abstract Art files and keep them as tiff files cause that the best format to send off to printers, 180MB is not really that big when the size of canvas needs to be bigger scale artwork.

You might wznt to consider using dvds for storing your artwork as you would be able to get 24 180MB images on each disk.

junipaire if these files are really essential to you then I'd make 2 copies so that if a disk got damaged you'd have a back up.
