Converting from little to big endian

TIFF image format is known as a high quality image provider, multipage layout supporter which is not picky about the software able to process it – it’s compatible with most image editing tools. There is one thing though that makes this format more complicated – the byte order when it is created. While most image formats define some basic rules for their representation, TIFF is different. The byte order of the TIFF image can be either big endian or little endian. When the byte order starts with least significant bytes, it is called little edian; when it starts with most significant bytes, it is called big endian. The byte order does not matter much when you use the same computing system. Bu when the systems are different, there may appear significant problems, because the processors are designed to work either with one way (little endian) or the other (big endian). This is one of the reasons to convert little endian TIFF into a big endian one, or vice versa. ImageConverter Plus provides this possibility alongside with other TIFF format peculiarities and necessities. When performing conversion to TIFF from other image format you’d better find out first which byte order is supported by your computer and choose the corresponding type when opening ImageConverter Plus and getting ready for conversion.
