What is a TIFF file?
A .TIFF file is a Tagged Image File Format Bitmap file. TIFF stands for Tagged Image File Format and is an image file format. Files with the .tiff extension contain graphics containers that store vector and raster images in both lossless and lossy compression formats. The TIFF file format supports any image resolution and black and white, gray-scale, and color images. The TIFF file format was created as a standard image format to save high-quality images that could be used across multiple computer platforms. The .tiff file extension is interchangeable with the .tif file extension - we have descriptions of multiple TIF/TIFF formats on our TIF file page.
