What is a TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) file?

Tagged Image File Format (TIFF), also known as TIF, is one of the most common image file formats. The most prevalent use of TIFF files is in digital advertisements and desktop publishing. The bitmap and raster structure of TIFFs provide this file format with the flexibility to function as a container for JPEGs, image files with lossless compression, images with layers, or as pages.

How to open a TIFF file?

The most common programs to open TIFF files are Photo Viewer for Windows and Apple Preview for macOS. A free and independent program you can use is called XnView MP. You can also use our TIFF to JPG converter if you are having trouble opening tiff files.

What is a BMP (Bitmap) file?

Bitmap (BMP) is a pixel-based file format that stores two-dimensional images, generally without any compression. BMP utilizes a dot matrix data structure called raster graphics, which establishes the color depth of the image. BMP is mostly used for digital publishing of photographs. However, due to the lack of compression, BMP files are usually large.

How to open a BMP file?

BMP can be device-dependent or independent. BMP opens readily in the Microsoft Paint application and is often associated with Microsoft operating systems. Despite the association with Microsoft, a device-independent BMP, or DIB, can open on almost any device, operating system, or application. 


In addition to opening BMP files, many applications can be used to create them, such as Adobe Illustrator. Should you need to convert the BMP into a vector-based image, then consider using CorelDRAW. Other applications that can open BMP files include Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Photos, Apple Preview, Apple Photos, and ColorStrokes.
