I am using GIMP to clean up and crop some scanned files stored in TIFF format. 
The files are 50-60KB, but upon cropping GIMP increases their size to 120KB! 
Even simply open-save increases the file size to 130KB or so. I am quite 
perplexed! Any explanation will be gratefully acknowledged. 

PS: The file size of 120KB is after converting to 1 bit indexed format and 
flattened plus using LZW compression. Otherwise, simple  "save" results in a 
staggering 10MB file size.
