Introduced in late 1980-s by the Aldus Corporation (currently known as Adobe), the Tagged Image File Format - or TIFF - was meant to be a single standardized image format for all scanned images. Before this, every scanner manufacturer had its own unique file format, which led to serious difficulties for their users.
The newly-invented universal image format was quickly taken on by all major companies: apart from eliminating obvious compatibility issues, TIFF also provides several unique perks. TIFF files are raster images that can collect several images in a single document, recognize a wide range of color schemes, and allow for a variety of compression modes. The format is one of the best options for digital image preservation and allows users to store highly detailed and vibrant pictures or photos.
So why convert PDF to TIFF? Parts of PDF files may need to be used for detailed graphic images intended for large-scale printing, magazines, or marketing material. In all of these cases, the end result would need to be saved in TIFF format. Converting your PDF to TIFF will make more sense and allow you to compile all parts of the finished image in TIFF format.
