How to Change a TIF File to a PDF File
PDF stands for "Portable Document Format," which was developed by Adobe Systems. PDFs are designed for electronic document interchanges; this format preserves the original look of a document including its graphics and layout. Tagged Image Format (TIF) is a commonly-used image format that allows a user to store high-quality graphics. TIFs are large in size; converting a TIF graphic to a PDF simplifies file exchanges as well as reducing the file size.
