Default Compressed vs. uncompressed??

When I save a TIF image in Paint Shop Pro, I'm given a choice of three options: (1) Uncompressed; (2) LZW Compressed; and (3) Packbits Compressed.

Unfortunately, I don't know what these options mean. I'v just been using the "Uncompressed" choice because it's highlighted when the dialog box opens.

I'd appreciate any information about using these options.


P.S. Sooner or later, I'm hopefully going to learn enough to halfway know what I'm doing with images. <s>
