Yeah, it is a bit of an overestimate. But we're scanning mostly 8x10 photos,
some are black and white (which would reduce the file size).

I extrapolated from the 3 images that Greenstone stores: the imported file
(35MB tif), the display jpeg (1.5 MB), and the thumbnail (20K)...all of them
times 10,000.

The display jpeg is too large right now, as well. And the master tiffs may
average less than the sample. But I was aiming for a high-end estimate.
