How to Convert Scanned TIFF Images with Text to Searchable PDFs

Do you a have a printed document and need to make a digital copy of it? Scanning is a quick option. Or an even quicker one is photographing it with your smartphone. In both cases, what you will get is an image of the text, most likely saved under a raster format, such as PNG, JPEG or TIFF. In fact, the latter is often preferred by scanning and faxing devices due to its good quality rendering of text.

But while being an accessible and flexible format, supporting both lossy and lossless compression, TIFF has one major disadvantage. Texts scanned under this format cannot be edited or searched. This might be a problem if, for example, you have a scanned book and need to look for a certain keyword. Or if you want to translate the scanned document via machine translation. The best solution in such cases is converting to a format that can be edited and searched — PDF.

Converting Documents into TIFF FAX Format

TIFF file format

The FAX format is also referred to as CCITT Group 3 or Group 4 compression and many people opt for it either when they plan to prepare an image file for being sent by fax, or when they simply want to save space by converting to a bitonal format. CCITT is an abbreviation coming from the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultive Committee — the organization responsible for establishing several transmission protocols, including Group 3 and Group 4 which apply to black-and-white images. Among the image extensions which support the CCITT Group 3 and Group protocols, TIFF is one of the most popular.

Convert NEF Images to TIFF without Quality Loss

Nikon is one of the most popular brands of digital cameras, widely favored both by professional and amateur photographers. But if you are the fresh owner of a Nikon camera and you have just downloaded the first series of photographs taken with it, you might be puzzled by the extension of the image files stocked on your computer.

NEF is the trademarked extension of RAW photos taken with Nikon cameras. Many photographers prefer to take RAW photos (also called “digital negatives”), instead of the usual JPEG, because they contain minimally processed data and they can easily be customized using digital editing software. However, their size tends to be very large and they are not supported by regular image viewers. Plus, handling them requires the use of advanced digital editing programs, which are not particularly easy to use. Moreover, sending or uploading RAW images to photo sharing sites is impossible if you don’t convert them to a more accessible format.
