Do most scanners allow you to save scanned documents as Tif files?

If not, software such as IRFANVIEW may let you convert it to TIFF.

For me, this makes the TIFF requirement a non-issue.

Gm, It Depends On The Software That Comes With The Scanner
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 2, 2004 8:43 AM PDT

I've had three different scanners and they all saved to .tiff format, as well as .jpg, and others. (Epson CD5200 All in One, Umax Astra 4000U, and an old HP of some sort)

But in most cases where photos were involved, I used other software to edit the pic.

Hope this helps.
