What is a PDF file?
PDF stands for portable document format, and it is a file format universally used for images and text documents. The universality of PDF files results from the amount of information contained within each file, but this can also result in excessively large file size. For this reason, PDF files can be compressed to a more manageable file size that saves disk space and takes less time to upload.
The use of batch TIFF conversion to PDF
TIFF, or Tagged Image File Format, files are commonly used because most scanners create TIFF files. However, TIFF files are also very large and cannot be compressed as well as PDF files can. PDF uses lossless compression algorithms that allow you to reduce file size without losing any information. When you process large numbers of scanned documents, it is helpful to convert them to PDF, and batch processing tools help you handle many files quickly.
