    FLAC style image format

    [SOLVED] I'm looking for a format that I can use to store document scans in.(long-term)

    I'd like something that is similar to FLAC, only for images:
    Lossless compression
    Crossplatform
    Preferably widely used
    "Open"

    Do any of the current image formats do the above?

    Ouch. I thought png is uses lossy compression & didn't even consider it as a candidate.
