Create Serialized TIFF Images

A serialized TIFF images means you want to create a TIFF image file for each page printed to the Image Printer instead of having all the printed pages stored in one multi-page TIFF file.

You need to be able to open and print your original document in order to create a Serialized TIFF image. For example, to create a Serialized TIFF image from a PDF file, you would need to have Adobe Reader or another PDF viewer that has printing capabilities, installed on your computer.

TIFF Image Printer and Raster Image Printer use Profiles, which are a group of settings, to create the output image you want. TIFF Image Printer comes with a few system profiles including: Color Optimized TIFF, Monochrome TIFF, Fax TIFF, and Serialized Color Optimized TIFF. Raster Image Printer comes with a few system profiles including: Color Optimized TIFF, Monochrome TIFF, Fax TIFF, Adobe PDF, Serialized Color Optimized TIFF, Non-Searchable PDF, and Color Optimized JPEG. To create serialized TIFF images, simply set the profile “Serialized Color Optimized TIFF” as the default profile.
