Meaning of TAGGED IMAGE FILE FORMAT

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(TIFF) A file format used for still-image bitmaps, stored in tagged fields. application programs can use the tags to accept or ignore fields, depending on their capabilities.

While TIFF was designed to be extensible, it lacked a core of useful functionality, so that most useful functions (e.g. lossless 24-bit colour) requires nonstandard, often redundant, extensions. The incompatibility of extensions has led some to expand "TIFF" as "Thousands of Incompatible File Formats".

Compare gif, png, jpeg.
