Open TIFF File

TIFF file contains an image in image file interchange format used in both print and digital cameras. While TIF is short for Tagged Image File, it is written as a shorter variant of the Tagged Image File Format (TIFF), but there are no differences between two formats.

TIFF files provide true color reproduction in print with a color depth of up to 32 bits per channel, supporting cyan, magenta, and yellow color grades. This level of detail makes TIFF files quite large to handle. TIFF files are ideal for efficient encoding of RAW files.

Therefore, many digital cameras support the TIFF format for storing RAW images.

Since TIFF allows lossless storage of an image, it is particularly useful for post-processing with professional software.

However, TIFF files have a size limit set at 4 GB, which does not really represent a problem for the SLR processing of modern digital images, but making a point, in astronomical scientific applications or that require a zoom very entrenched, the TIFF hits its performance limit here.
