How to Convert a TIFF to JPG

By Jamie Lisse

TIFF files are image files that are very large in size and retain high quality. If you want to decrease the file size of some of your TIFF files you can convert those TIFF files to JPG files. In order to convert a TIFF to a JPG you will need to have some image editing software to use. You can easily convert a TIFF to a JPG in image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Fireworks, Image Converter Plus and more.
