TIFF to PDF converter

When we talk about high-resolution scans, faxes, and document archives, Tag Image File Format (TIFF or TIF for short) is the first choice. TIFF files perfectly retain the original image's detail and color depth, do not add compression artifacts, and can store multiple pages in a single file. TIFF files also support flexible compression algorithms, making them much easier to store than other lossless image formats such as BMP. However, the TIFF file size is still significant, especially when we work with higher resolution images. Also, TIFF files are raster images after all, so their content cannot be searched or indexed, which means they can be awkward to use in electronic archives and libraries.

This free online application allows you to convert single-page and multi-page TIFF images into a navigable, searchable PDF containing the original image and text overlay that you can select, copy and index. It can also work directly with TIFF files hosted on websites without downloading images to your computer. The app works on any device, including smartphones.
