The need for TIFF compression
TIFF is a format that is commonly used for scanned documents. Because scanned images contain a great deal of information, TIFF files tend to be quite large, and inconvenient to use as a result. Bulky files can pose problems in many different contexts, but because scanners output this format, TIFF remains widely used.
Problems with TIFF compression
Because scanned files get so large, they can be compressed in order to preserve the contents of the original document. Unfortunately, TIFF compression does not yield very significant reductions in size, and for this reason many people look for alternatives. PDF files, for example, can also contain the detailed information of a scanned image, but can be compressed much more efficiently.
Finding TIFF compression software
Instead of looking for software that can directly compress TIFF files, consider taking an alternative approach. Combine a conversion tool with a PDF compressor, so that you can convert files into PDF and then compress them to a fraction of their original size while preserving the contents. PdfCompressor from CVISION is once such solution. Download the free trial now to test it out and see.
