Converter TIFF to PPM

TIFF is a format that allows you to store raster graphics with tags. It was developed by Aldus Corporation in conjunction with Microsoft so that it can be used with PostScript. Aldus Corporation owns specifications. Subsequently, this company merged with Adobe Systems. It is she who now owns the copyright to these specifications. Typically, TIFF files (Tagged Image File Format) are with the extension .tiff or .tif. Aldus was specifically engaged in the development of the format in order to achieve the preservation of scanned images. The popularity of TIFF can be explained by the fact that it is preferred in order to store images that have a large color depth. The format is used to send faxes, scan, recognize texts. It is widely supported in the printing industry. TIFF was chosen as the main graphic format of the NeXTSTEP operating system. Then from this system TIFF support migrated to Mac OS X. At first, the format supported lossless compression. Then it was supplemented in order to support lossy compression in JPEG format. We emphasize that the maximum weight of a document, if stored in this form, is no more than 4 GB. To open a TIFF file larger than 2 GB, you must run Photoshop CS.

PPM is an image file format that is included in the Netpbm open source graphics editor. This graphic format is convenient and simple. Other Netpbm formats that have found widespread use are PBM, i.e. Portable Bitmap, as well as PGM, i.e. Portable Graymap. This three graphic formats are sometimes referred to as PNM, i.e. Portable Format Anymap. PGM stores grayscale images. PMP is a collection of color images, which are intermediate files that are used when converting formats not so well known, using Portable Bitmap Utilities. And PPM files are mainly used on UNIX platforms that are based on Intel. These files are categorized as bitmap images. This is a 24-bit color image that has been formatted in text format. Takes every pixel with a number from zero to 65536 for storage. The color of the pixel is determined by the number. Contains data spaces, the height and width of the character, the maximum color values. Portable Pixmap uses an uncompressed low-performance format that can be compared with other bitmap image formats. This explains its rare use in order to store large images.
