The TIFF format stands for ‘Tagged Image File Format’. It was developed by Aldus Corporation to save images from scanners and photo editing programs, but it is currently owned by Adobe. The format is a graphics container that contains raster and vector images. It supports high-quality graphics, color depths from 1 to 24 bit, multiple layers, lossy and lossless compression and pages. Due to its flexibility not all programs can read the many varieties of TIFF.
