• Step 1: Choose the file (PDF) you want to convert and drag it into the covert box on the left. Multi-page PDFs are supported.
  • Step 2: The conversion into TIFF images will begin automatically.
  • Step 3: When the conversion is done, you will be directed to a download page. Download the TIFF file.



The PDF and TIFF format in Comparison:

The TIFF image format is popular among graphic designers and publishers. It is a lossless format, and therefore, it ensures that images maintain their initial quality. This is the reason why TIFF files can be quite big. PDF, on the hand, is a file format for portable documents which do not change their layout. In the following paragraphs you find the main characteristics of both file formats:

What is the PDF format?

PDF was created to be independent of Software, OS, application, and hardware. It is a standard with which documents and other referencing material are represented and was developed by Adobe in the 1990s. It is a Portable Document Format that includes 3D objects, rich media, Geospatial, digital signatures, and metadata which are often part of a source document.

Creating a new PDF file can be a whole lot of stress because one would have to go into putting in those tokens which could be time-consuming. Instead, it is mostly preferred to be converted into PDF from other formats since there are tools to achieve that. However, it is not to say there is no software to help one to create and manipulate a PDF file format.

What is the TIFF format?

TIFF also TIF is a Tagged Image File Format that raster images which can be used for different devices and are compatible with the TIF standard. it can be used to describe palette-color, grayscale, full color, and bilevel image data in various color spaces. it allows lossless and lossy compression schemes to select time or space in applications that use the format. This file format is not dependent on the machine and very independent of bounds such as processing system, file system, or processor.

TIFF is extensible and has gone through different a revision which gives it the capability to accommodate a limitless number of special-purpose and private information.

The file starts with 8byte headers that are numbered from 0 to N and it shows there is an image file directory (IFD). The largest TIFF in length is about 2x32bytes. The IFD carries information about the image and actual image data.
