TIFF and PDF are two different image formats, though can be used in similar situation. To choose which of them is more suitable for this or that case, one needs to learn the advantages and disadvantages of both. TIFF is a raster image file. Photographs made in the TIFF format are of superb quality, though very large in size, which makes the superb quality difficult to share in the web. PDF can be a vector, a raster file or none of these. It is widely used for storing documents rather than images. TIFF files are very changeable and can be edited to be more adapted to different applications. PDF files remain as they are – no matter where you view your PDF images, they will look exactly the same. Editing PDF is a headache though. Both image formats are used for desktop publishing, though with different specifications. TIFFs are widely accepted in the graphics design industry, but not among non-professional users. Text in TIFF documents turns into image data, which makes it hard to perceive. PDF is great for printing industry. It will reproduce art and text amazingly well while delivering a decent print-ready file in a relatively small file size. But if we talk about printing large images, TIFF is more advantageous. If your goal is to get a compressed file smaller in size than TIFF, then PDF is the way to go. You can convert your TIFF images into PDF with ImageConverter Plus.
