Some time ago there was a discussion on this list with respect to
OpenOffice files which actually are ZIP archives - only that the
average OO file still is a number smaller than images. AFAIK
Nikon's RAW format is heavily compressed, many TIFF are LZW
compressed, dunno what PS does to its PSP format.
