I really need help for this problem. I searched it more than 2 days but i couldnt find any solution.

I have an application wrritten by framework at fronthand side. I have a problem related with showing tif file in a browser.You know some of browsers don't support tif file.Only IE and Saffari browsers support it.But I want to show it in Google Chrome browser.Also I want to not only view but also magnify and shrink to examine it.At this point, to meet my need what can I do.According to some research, It can be shown after conversion to other standart image format(png,jpg).Would you show me a way to overcome this problem.

Thanks in advance

TIFF is not a format suitable for images on the Internet, and it is poorly supported. Instead, you should use:

  • JPG for photos (JPG's compression is not lossless, but it's good for photos).
  • PNG for ClipArts and schematics (it has lossless compression which is good for large uni-color surfaces).

The preferred way to convert would be to directly access the TIFFs on your server and to convert them, either with a graphical tool like GIMP or with a console batch converter like imagemagick (check their websites for demos).

I cannot recommend sending a TIFF to the client and let them convert it at every access. It sends too much data, results in a longer page load, decreases battery life of handheld devices and is much less portable.
