It's an image compression technique that was made in the 80s by some dudes with last names that started with L, Z, and W from all I remember. It's very outdated but it's what our publisher requires. If your main image editor doesn't have it, you can just save it as PNG first and load it into Photoshop which should show you the compression options.
I'm back~~~

Most of the pages I treated were already in tiff but it's easy and simple to convert a jpeg file to tiff in photoshop. Use the option save as, select tiff and LZW in the options and it's ok!

Alright, cool. Thanks everyone.

So since it's PG-13 and we're following the movie guidelines we can drop the f-bomb once in our story? Hahahaha, just kidding.

Anthology is printed in Black and white so color won't be a problem. Even you can submit scanned files and get them inked by someone in forum. :)

The only problem I can see with using MS paint is that you won't be able to work at 300 DPI which is required by the printer. The pages can be scaled during publication but that may affect quality both during production and after scaling.

True. Have to check if there is a way out of this.

I have a solution for you.

I can send you a 300 dpi white page at the good dimensions. You can open it on ms paint and make your pages with it. When you will save them, they will still be at 300 dpi.

I tested it and it worked.

It's something publisher wants for printing. Resolution has to be 300dpi where in when standerd resolution is 72dpi. You ll find the page is bit larger. Better learn SAI or GIMP or both fast. These software helps a lot.
