How to Batch Merge TIFF Files
The Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) is a high quality data holding file used for final page layout in the publishing industry, as well as by professional photographers for capturing very high resolution or very large screen size images. In addition to image data, such as color specifications, the TIFF file format also allows addition of private tags containing author name, date of creation, location, and means of creation. It also allows multi page storage, which means two or more images can be stored one after another in sequential pages within a single file. Hence one can easily batch merge TIFF Files.
How to Manually Batch Merge TIFF Files
You can write a simple script that will take all the TIFF files in a directory and batch merge the TIFF Files. You can give similar names to batches of TIFF files, and then the script will take these similar files as groups and merge them, so that you will have merged files as the output. Since TIFF files are stuck together sequentially, the script can easily merge the files in batch mode. Many such shell scripts are available on the Internet to batch merge TIFF Files, or you can write a simple command line script yourself.
