My first real projects in affinity designer on the iPad

Is there a particular reason why you chose to post those images in TIFF format? If you upload JPEG or PNG versions we’ll be able to view them directly in a web browser instead of having to download them separately and view them in another application.

Unless you are digitally editing, archiving or working on print media, there's no real advantage to using TIFFs. It's worth noting that PNGs use the same lossless LZW compression as TIFFs, but can be smaller in file size. There seems to be a bit of a fallacy (particularly in the snapper community) that PNGs are a direct replacement for the old GIFF format, and as such are only suitable for hard-edged graphics images. In my experience, they handle continuous tone images just fine.

It seems to be widely believed that an 8-bit GIF is always smaller in file size than the corresponding 8-bit PNG, but that isn’t necessarily the case (and even when it is, the difference is generally minuscule).

That said, in most cases, when posting noncritical images online, JPEG can achieve substantially smaller file sizes than both TIFF and PNG and (if done correctly) can exhibit minimal artefacts. 

JPEG is usually a good choice for works of art, but best avoided where text is involved. If you compare a screenshot of a program dialog saved as a PNG and saved as a JPEG, even with the latter at 100% ‘quality’ (i.e. minimum compression), you’re likely to find artefacts around the edges of the text in the JPEG version, but the PNG version will be perfectly sharp and its file size will usually still be quite low.

You’re not kidding about “lots of patience”! I’ve just visited the download URL

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1RNdcGhD3w3RLkm3z0EqdCodmIifZjPzH/view?usp=drivesdk

and found that it’s a large (87.4 MB) and unsurprisingly complex file.
