How to Change TIF to PDF

TIF files preserve pictures in the highest quality available, unlike JPG or GIF. However, TIF is not an acceptable format to display on a Web page. To enable a TIF picture to be displayed on a website without ruining its quality, convert it to a PDF file with a conversion program, such as Tiff to Pdf Converter 3000.
