How to Convert TIFF to PDF Offline and Online

Before the PDF format there was the TIFF format, a multi-page image format used to store scanned images of documents to digitally preserve them. However, over time, it became less sufficient for meeting the demands of a new digital workflow.

Technological advances with the PDF format though, has made it easier to meet those demands.

Unlike the TIFF format, the PDF generates small file sizes through compression and assures clear text when being viewed. To top it off, the PDF provides more than just an image of a document. It provides a digital version of a TIFF you can interact with as a real document with page navigation and text selection.
