Batch and Free: 3 Ways to Convert TIFF (TIF) to EPS

TIF (Tagged Image File Format) being the raster image and EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) being the vector image so it becomes a little tricky to convert these files. Many converters are available which perform this task free of cost. TIF contains high quality images and EPS along with image also contains text to describe the position of drawings on the image. Mostly the conversions are needed according to the desire of the users. It all depends on users what they want. They may change their requirements according to their needs. At one time they may need TIFF images and after some time they may require EPS images. So considering these four methods are discussed here to perform this conversion.  

What is TIF (Tagged Image File Format)?

TIF stands for Tagged Image File Format. It is a raster image with unique features. The old file formats like FAT used TIF because maximum three alphabets were allowed for extension using FAT file format. The new file formats like NTFS use TIFF. So, both TIF and TIFF are same. It is used for storing professional images and contain large metadata. It also includes size and compression algorithm information. Images can easily be opened in both Windows and MAC. It is a secure format for storing images of high quality. The latest version is TIFF 6. It is a lossless compression algorithm and saves the quality of image. It is not web friendly because it slows down speed.

  • Alpha channel included in TIF shows the transparency of pixels individually 
  • Contains high quality images for printing process 
  • Fast compression algorithm 

What is EPS (Encapsulated PostScript)? 

EPS stands for Encapsulated PostScript. This image format also contains text along with image. This format is descriptive in nature. Digital images are usually purchased in EPS format because of ease to resize them. It is the creation of adobe. It is specially designed for vector based images 

Advantages of EPS  

Following are the reasons of using EPS as the image format:
