TIFF File Format
TIFF File Format FAQ
Frequently asked questions about the TIFF file format.
The BigTIFF file format is an ongoing attempt to design a next version of TIFF, specifically targeted at
breaking the 4 gigabyte boundary. This page presents an overview of the current proposal.
TIFF Tag Reference
A reference on all known baseline, extended, and private TIFF tags. Includes basic properties of each tag (such
as code, name, LibTiff name and data type), as well as a short description. Also includes a useful search
function, and a means for owners of private tags to submit data about there tags.
TIFF Tag Viewer
AsTiffTagViewer is a free TIFF Tag Viewer application for Windows. It lets you view each TIFF page's tags/fields
(code, data type, count and value). AsTiffTagViewer is an indispensable tool for any professional to diagnose
any TIFF file. Whenever a customer reports your software doesn't handle this or that particular TIFF, use
AsTiffTagViewer and discover why.
LibTiff Mailing List Archive
AWare Systems maintains and hosts the LibTiff mailing list archive. LibTiff is an open source TIFF library.
At one time, there was only parts and pieces of archive left, scattered all over the web, in various formats and
riddled with huge gaps and mutilations. AWare Systems felt it necessary to restore that archive, as good as
possible, as a community service. We are now proud to announce that we also host that archive, right here.
TIFF in Delphi
LibTiffDelphi is a pre-compiled version of LibTiff for use in the Borland Delphi programming environment.
This section contains a list of links to the TIFF specification and other TIFF file format and TIFF imaging related sites.
