Convert TIFF to PNG in a Snap!
A TIFF file is a raster image file format that has been widely used for storing, preserving, editing, and printing photographic images. It supports lossless compression of grayscale or color data in wide-gamut color spaces with up to 16 bits per channel.
PNG files are smaller than TIFF files and they can store 24-bit color images with an 8-bit alpha channel. If you’re only working with grayscale or color images, that’s not making much of a difference for you. However, if you’re working on large documents that use more than 256 different colors, the PNG format is preferable because it uses lossless compression to shrink the file size without sacrificing quality.
While TIFF is designed exclusively for graphics interchange, PNG is designed to be both a graphics interchange and general-purpose file format. To convert an unlimited number of TIFF files to JPG, sign up for DoNotPay. We’ll get the job done safely and within seconds!

If you opt for an online TIFF to PNG converter, you will undoubtedly encounter various issues that are both frustrating and will cost you a lot of time. Some of the most common ones include:
- File conversion errors
- Inability to convert more than three files in one go
- Slow conversion process
- Inability to reduce the size of the file without sacrificing quality
Keep in mind that most online converters are not able to convert large files. When you upload a file you want to convert, it mustn’t exceed a certain size. Otherwise, the application will crash and you will lose your work and all of the time spent on converting it to another format.
The biggest issue with online file converters still remains the risk of getting your data stolen by hackers. Converted files downloaded from a sketchy website may contain malware hackers use to gain access to your email, bank account, passwords, etc.
It is crucial to determine whether or not the file converter is safe to use if you want to protect your data. However, this is not always an easy task. Regardless of the type of file you’re converting, there are three steps to consider before using an online converter:
- Look at the file extension on the converted file—The converter should change the original file extension on your file to a download or temporary file extension. If it does not, there’s a good chance you’re downloading a malicious version of your intended target
- Look for some basic security features such as SSL encryption upon download—SSL encryption is important because it offers secure communication between the server and the client
