How to Convert to TIFF
First, you will need to install TIFF Image Printer onto your computer. This adds the TIFF Image Printer Dashboard icon to your desktop. The dashboard brings all tools and resources for the printer into one place. It is where you activate the product, edit and create profiles for the different flavors of TIFF files you want to create, and manage copies of the printer.
Next, open the file you want to print, such as a Word document like shown below. Once opened, go to File-Print to open the printing options.
To send your file to the printer, choose TIFF Image Printer 12 from the list of printers and then click the Print button.
Before creating the TIFF image, a Save File prompt will appear. From this dialog, choose where to save your TIFF image and what to name it. The new file name is based on the original document name when possible.
The Save as type dropdown shows a list of profiles. A profile is a group of settings that control how and where to create the TIFF image, among other things. For basic TIFF conversion we recommend starting with the Color Optimized TIFF profile. To edit and copy profiles to make your own, use the Profile Manager from the Dashboard.
