Hi, Barry,
I do not understand your answer! In the French education, when the
IGN(NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC INSTITUTE) gives us rasters of a department for
training, they are in ECW (10 Go by department!) what makes 100 Go in TIF:
it is uncontrolled! 
But I had the other more constructive answers, in particular on OpenJpeg... 
I am not "protesting": I look for solutions for my students! :)
Is it the image that you have French?
Best regards

 Is there not a typical French solution, which is to protest? :)

 I just had a quick look at some of the things I could find on the IGN web
site and they seem to be fairly open formats, I can't find ECWs anywhere.
But of course, if there was a data set I really wanted to use, that would be
the one!

 Round here:
