TIFF to GIF converter
TIFF is an extensive raster image file format that supports lossless compression. It is widely used for editing and storing high-quality digital images, while retaining the full detail of the original source image. Commonly used by professionals, TIFF files are capable of storing multiple color depths including 16-bits per channel. They are also popular for exchange between different image editing applications.
TIFF files can store many different types of raster images, including defined layers, text, alpha channels and effects. They are capable of both lossy and lossless compression, allowing for flexibility when it comes to size vs quality. Unlike JPEG, TIFF is also relatively platform independent and is supported by a wide variety of operating systems.
The GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is an 8-bit image file format that is widely used to display animation and graphics. It supports up to 256 colors and is often used to display small web graphics for logos or simple animations. It can be used both for static images and for animated images, and generally compresses images better than other image formats.
The GIF format supports data compression, but does not support animation or sound. It is also limited in its ability to provide better image quality than other image formats such as JPEG. However, GIFs are more suitable for use on the web because of their small size and relatively fast loading times.
