Today’s companies and academic institutions are choosing the TIFF Image file format for their day-to-day document conversion needs.
Here are some of the features of TIFF Image files that make the format a good choice for many companies:
TIFF is what is known as a lossless format – what you see is what you get. While larger in size then some other image file formats, saving files in this format ensures that images will produce and maintain the highest quality. This makes it ideal for converting research papers, scientific papers or any file that you plan to submit to an online journal or for publishing.
TIFF images are difficult to alter, making them ideal for protecting information and archiving. As well, unlike file formats like PDF, Word or PowerPoint, TIFF is a clean file format which contains no links or hidden data. Therefore it can never have a virus embedded within it. This makes TIFF a safe and reliable format for sharing files with customers and co-workers.
Monochrome/faxable TIFF image files are preferable to PDF files in many instances. On average, they can be smaller than PDF files, which means they can be sent faster, use less bandwidth, and take up less disk space; this means that in most cases, more of them can be stored on a single server.
As a well-established file type, TIFF is supported by a large range of applications. This conveniently makes TIFF files viewable by everyone, no matter what platform they are running. The format also offers various compression options to support any storage needs. Another great feature of TIFF is that it supports multiple pages, allowing you to combine numerous documents into one file. This makes TIFF ideal for medical institutions for merging patient records, x-rays and charts into a single, easy to view file.
