How to Convert PDF to TIFF

The easiest way to convert PDF to a TIFF file is to print it using a virtual printer. A virtual printer differs from a regular one in the way it handles the files – instead of printing the image on paper it will save it in the preferred format.

To convert PDF to TIFF, download and install the Universal Document Converter. Then, please follow this manual

Step 1: Open your document and click Print

Avoiding the Corrupted Fonts Issue Using “Print as image”

Although you may see the fonts and images that the file contains represented accurately on the screen, they may fail to be represented same accurately on paper. This happens because programs like Adobe Reader use different algorithms for image display that may not be interpreted in the correct way by other devices and programs.

To solve the problem please follow the instruction:

  1. Open PDF and press File->Print in Adobe Reader menu
  2. Select Universal Document Converter from the list of printers and click Advanced
  3. Click Print as image as shown on the screenshot below
  4. Click OK to save the introduced settings and click Print to start the PDF to TIFF conversion process

Automatic Conversion from PDF to TIFF in the Office

Situations when the files received by the company are saved in the format that the company employees will need to convert to a different one, are very common. To introduce automatic conversion settings use FolderMill – the software that has been designed to closely monitor all the file extensions of the incoming files and will automatically convert them to the specified format.

For example, if you receive the files saved as PDF but need to convert them to TIFF, this will become possible after you specify this rule to the Folder Mill software.
