The Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) is a versatile file format used for images. Developed by an Adobe subsidiary, TIFF offered a common, non-proprietary format for encoding image text data in the same file as the image itself. With common software, TIFF files are easily enlarged, reduced and manipulated for any purpose.
Things You'll Need
- Microsoft Paint
- TIFF file
Click the "Start" button and navigate to the "Accessories" menu. Open Microsoft Paint.
Open the "Paint" menu and click on "open." Navigate to the desired TIFF file and open it in Microsoft Paint.
Open the "Image" menu and click on "Resize." Click the check box to "Maintain Aspect Ratio." This will ensure that the proportions of the original image are not lost in the new image.
Choose to resize the image either by percentage or by measurement in pixels. If resizing by percentage, enter a percentage greater than 100% in the horizontal box (i.e. 150%). This will increase the size of the image in both height and width by that percentage. To resize by measurement, enter a pixel measurement greater than the current pixel size.
Save the new image as a new file.
