How big can be big-Tiff?

Images may come fr om very different sources – not just digital cameras, but also telescopes and microscopes. Talking about microscopy, digital imaging is essential for scientific research – to study the inner structure of malignant and benign tumors, to understand the nature of infection, to do the laboratory work and share the results. Images received from digital microscopes are not so easy to share – they usually turn out to be pretty large and can be barely viewed by regular image viewers. The image resolution may be like 7664×5037, and the image size about 114mb. The problem with interpreting this data lies not just in the size of the image, but mainly in its type. The file type received from an electronic microscope is usually the sub-type of the TIFF format – OME-TIFF. This type of TIFF is a big-TIFF file that needs special software to be interpreted. ImageConverter Plus supports reading and writing into TIFF, BigTIFF, and also reading of OME-TIFF. There are no lim its to the image size that ImageConverter Plus can handle. Plus, we are always open to adding new formats variations into our data base.
