The Tagged-Image File Format (TIFF) is a pixel based format, used to exchange image documents between different applications and different computer platforms. Typically, in applications that support TIFF, the scene currently displayed on the screen is saved into a TIFF file. Each screen pixel is saved with the color information as shown on the screen. TIFF files can be quite large. To keep their size reasonable, there is an option for compressing them.
