The selected compression type must be appropriate for the current image type.  The image type can be set via the IExportImage::ImageType property.  If you select the wrong image compression type for the current image type, selecting esriTIFFCompressionFax4 for a TrueColor image, for example, the export object will throw a runtime error.  The error will state "Object set up incorrectly and cannot perform the requested operation."
