Another Journal Article Another TIF Debacle

I quite simple cannot fathom the logic behind journal submittal rules that demand you upload figures in .tif format at 600 dpi, then put strict, tight file size limits on the submittal package!

You've already specified that my figures will be enormous; don't tell me I have to be under 30 MB. Go to hell, assholes.

And the submittal is 100% web based with a Java app checking compliance at every step. "Sorry, it's not us refusing your submittal for trivial shit; it's the system!"
