What is a TIFF file?
A TIFF file is a 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. TIFF files also support 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 commonly seen with the .TIF extension.
NOTE: The TIFF format was originally developed by Aldus, who merged with Adobe Systems in 1994.
