Export Pages as TIFF

Xodo PDF Studio is able export the pages of a PDF document as a TIFF image. When exporting a PDF as an image, by default all of the page content will be flattened and rasterized into a separate image for each page of the document. The TIFF image format does allow all pages to be exported into a single file which can be enabled in the export dialog in Xodo PDF Studio.


How to Export PDF Pages as a TIFF Image

  1. Go to the Convert Tab > Images > Export Pages as TIFF on the toolbar
  2. Set the TIFF image export options you wish to use
  3. Click OK to begin exporting the images
  4. Once complete each page of the document will be exported as a separate file in the destination folder chosen

TIFF Image Export Options

The options in the Export Pages as TIFF dialog are as follows:

Destination Folder – You can type the destination manually or click on the "..." button to open a directory chooser to set the destination folder

Note: If the document has many pages it is best to select specific or empty folder because a separate image file will be created for every single page. If you select a folder that already contains images or other files the folder may become overwhelming

Remember Folder - When checked the selected folder will be remembered for the next time pages are exported as images

File Name Pattern – Enter the desired pattern for the output file names.

Note: Current page number and file extension ".tiff" will be appended to the pattern to create the final file name.

Pages -  The range of pages to be exported as images

  • All Pages: all pages in the document
  • Page Range: set the pages to be exported using the From and To options
  • Even Pages Only: only export the even pages of the document
  • Odd Pages Only: only export the odd pages of the document

DPI Resolution – Choose the desired resolution in DPI used to render the page. 72 is the PDF native resolution. When selecting a DPI it's best to follow the below guidelines

Black-and-white documents

    • Lowest acceptable resolution = 200 DPI (equal to “high” fax quality)
    • Conventional resolution = 300 DPI
    • Highest conventional resolution = 600 DPI

Color documents (and color compression)

    • Lowest acceptable resolution = 150 DPI
    • Conventional resolution = 200 DPI
    • Highest conventional resolution = 300 DPI
    • Archive resolution = 600 DPI

Compression – Choose the compression to use when exporting pages. The most standard one is Group 4 Fax, which is optimized for faxing.

  • Group 3 Fax
  • Group 4 Fax
  • Pack Bits
  • LZW
  • ZLib
  • Deflate
  • No Compression

Export all pages as a Single TIFF - The TIFF image format allows multiple images to be stored within a single document. When the image is opened in a supported viewer the image  viewer will display page navigation tools just like in the document. This makes it easier to send a large number of pages as a single file instead of multiple files.
