TIFF File Format
TIFF is an incredibly versatile format, with numerous options, and supports a number of compression options, including uncompressed, CCITT, PackBits, LZW and JPEG.
Because TIFF is such a flexible format, it is relatively easy for a software developer to create an application which can output TIFF complaint files. However, the format's versatility and flexibility is also a drawback, in that it is much harder for software developers to create applications which are able to read all TIFF files.
This problem is somewhat mitigated by the TIFF 6.0 specification, released in June 1992, which encourages programmers to support a baseline level of capabilities. Software complaint with the TIFF 6.0 baseline, should be able to read most TIFF files.
A technical discussion of this format can be found in Chapter 6 of Graphics File Formats† by David C. Kay and John R. Levine.
