TIFF is a computer file format for storing raster graphics images, popular among graphic artists, the publishing industry, and both amateur and professional photographers in general. The format was originally created by the company Aldus for use in desktop publishing. When Adobe Systems Acquired Aldus, they published Version 6 (1993) of the TIFF specification which dropped the Microsoft reference. TIFF remains a published specification under the control of Adobe Systems. The TIFF format is widely supported by image-manipulation applications, by publishing and page layout applications, and by scanning, faxing, word processing, optical character recognition and other applications.
