This is a high-quality image format that is usually used to save pictures with many colors, for example digital photos. It is compatible with layers and several pages and may be stored using an uncomressed (lossless) format or with JPEG (lossy) compression. TIF files can also use LZW lossless compression that reduces the file size, but does not affect the quality of the picture.
