TIFF is also widely used for storing documents – by design it is a fax service and a scanner service format known for its multipage layout. TIFF seems to be universal except for its main drawback – it is so large in size that it is never suitable for the web. Being a versatile format PDF (Portable Document Format) may contain very different types of information – both raster and vector and is really good at saving text.
