It is easy to overlook the good old TIFF format when developing applications as it has been eclipsed in the recent years by more modern, browser friendly, image formats such as JPG, PNG and GIF. However, there are a number of scenarios for which TIFF is still widely used, particularly because a single TIFF file can hold multiple pages.
Two of the more popular uses for multi-page TIFF files are the scanning of multiple pages into a single file and the reception of multi-page faxes. As these kind of document management scenarios are very common, particularly with our SharePoint customers, we have decided to add native support for this format to our popular range of PDF Conversion products.
The key features are as follows:
- Convert multi page TIFF files to a single PDF file.
- Automatic page size detection.
- Compatible with PDF/A.
- Supports all TIFF formats recognised by the underlying operating system.
As the converter is part of our highly scalable PDF Conversion platform, it automatically benefits from all its features including reliability, scalability, watermarking engine, cross platform support, web services based API, PDF security, SharePoint integration, Nintex Workflow integration, Java support, InfoPath attachments, Windows Azure etc.
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so listed below is a rather boring copy of a converted multi page TIFF file.
