What is a tiff file?

TIFF image files can store both raster and vector images, as well as multiple layers and pages. TIF files may contain high-quality graphics that support color depths from 1 to 24-bit. Recently, JPEG has eclipsed TIFF in universal popularity because of its small file size and Internet compatibility.  PNG is another popular image file format.

TIFF files can be saved in an uncompressed (lossless) format or may incorporate JPEG (lossy) compression. They may also use LZW lossless compression, which reduces the TIF file size, but does not reduce the quality of the image.

TIFF files were designed in the 1980s to be a standard image format for saving high-quality color images on multiple computer platforms. However, since the original TIFF format was introduced, various developers have made small improvements so there are now around 50 variations of the TIFF format. Luckily, Free File Opener can open any and all of the TIFF file variations.
