What is a TIFF file?

TIFF stands for Tagged 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.
