A TIFF file is an graphics container that stores raster images. It may contain high-quality graphics that support color depths from 1 to 24-bit and supports both lossy and lossless compression. The file also supports multiple layers and pages.
TIFF files were designed to be a standard image format for saving high-quality color images on multiple computer platforms. They are also very commonly seen with the .TIF extension.
The TIFF format was originally developed by Aldus, who merged with Adobe Systems in 1994.
