The Tagged Image File format (TIFF) is a raster format designed as a standard. Almost every graphics application can read and write TIFF files. There are many variations of TIFF, considering that TIFF supports six different encoding routines and three different image modes: black-and-white, grayscale, and color. Uncompressed TIFF images may contain 1, 4, 8, or 24 bits per pixel. TIFF images compressed using the LZW algorithm may contain 4, 8, or 24 bits per pixel. TIFF files can save information for RGB, CMYK, and Lab color modes, but not for duotones.

You can open or import TIFF files in Corel PHOTO-PAINT. For more information about opening or importing files, see “Opening images” or “Importing files.”

TIFF technical notes

Masks are not exported in 1-bit black-and-white, 16-bit grayscale, or 48-bit RGB files.
Black-and-white, color, and grayscale TIFF files up to and including the 6.0 specification can be imported and exported.
TIFF files compressed using CCITT, Packbits 32773, or LZW compression can also be imported. However, you may notice additional loading time with these files because the program decodes the file compression.
