Making a Compressed TIFF File
Being able to create a compressed TIFF files is useful when working with scanned documents, because sometimes the file size resulting from a scan is too big to work with. In response to the problem of excessively large files, there is software that can compress TIFF files for you, so that they use less disk space and can be sent via email.

Often, instead of compressing the TIFF file directly, it is better to convert it to PDF format first, and then compress the PDF file. Some PDF compression software has higher compression rates than TIFF compression software, and PDF files are often better to work with for other operations, such as OCR. PDF is widely used in many offices, and so most systems are adapted to reading and using documents in PDF format.
