Image Format TIFF

TIFF stands for «Format file marked up images» (Tagged Image File Format) is the standard for the printing and publishing industry. TIFF files are much larger than their JPEG-counterparts, and can be written with or without compression or with lossless compression. Unlike JPEG, TIFF files can be either 16 bit or 8 bit per channel. In addition, in one TIFF file can store multiple layers (pages) of the image.


TIFF files are the perfect choice for storing intermediate files that you may want to edit later because they do not introduce compression artifacts. Many cameras can record images at once in TIFF, but they can take much more space than the equivalent JPEG. If your camera Format RAW, this is an excellent alternative, as it is much smaller and can thus save even more information about the original image.
