The Internet has many places to ask questions about anything imaginable and find past answers on almost everything.
TIFF files are significantly larger than their JPEG counterparts, and can be either uncompressed or compressed using lossless compression. Unlike JPEG, TIFF files can have a bit depth of either 16-bits per channel or 8-bits per channel, and multiple layered images can be stored in a single TIFF file.
TIFF© puts the personal back into personal development. It gives an accurate snapshot of present behaviour. TIFF profiles are about the person’s ways of behaving, not about the actual person. No typing or categorising of people. No comparing of scores with ‘norms’ – no judgements.
a slight or petty quarrel. a slight fit of annoyance, bad mood, or the like. verb (used without object) to have a petty quarrel. to be in a tiff.
No, tif is not in the scrabble dictionary.
JPEG uses lossy compression, meaning that some image data is lost when the file is compressed. We use the uncompressed TIFF format meaning that no image data is lost after scanning. TIFF is a great choice for archiving images when all detail must be preserved and file size is not a consideration.
Does Anyone Still Use TIFF? Of course. Outside photography and printing, TIFF is also widely used in GIS (Geographic Information System) since you can embed spatial data into the bitmap. Scientists use an extension of TIFF called GeoTIFF which is fully compliant with TIFF 6.0.
RAW Archives: The Professional Responsibility Simply put, yes as a professional photographer I hold onto all RAW “keeper” images forever. If the client never saw the photo in the first place, and the image is nearly identical to one of the keepers, then there’s definitely no reason to keep them around permanently.
The RAW file itself is never changed. You can go back and make a new set of instructions (say, you want to print in black and white) but the RAW file still has all the original information just as it was taken. Editing and display use different formats.
Personally, if you are doing anything beyond the most basic of basic (crop, rotate, red-eye) touch up, then RAW is absolutely worth it. The advantage it gives you in terms of white balance, exposure and levels alone is reason enough to use them.
Simply put, you don’t ask a professional photographer to give you their RAW photos because that would be giving you only half of an unfinished work of art. More so, by asking your photographer for their RAW unedited photos it means you don’t trust them to deliver an edited image you’ll love.
RAW images are very large in file size so sending them as email attachments doesn’t work with gmail/yahoo because they have file size limits. This gets even more difficult when sending 50+ images at a time.
