About TIF File Format

TIF (or TIFF) is an image format used for containing high quality graphics. It stands for “Tagged Image File Format” or “Tagged Image Format”. The format was created by Aldus Corporation, but Adobe acquired the format later and made subsequent update in this format. TIF file is capable of holding both lossy JPEG compression and lossless image data. It can also contain vector based graphics data. TIF file format is widely supported in image editing applications. For that it’s a very popular image format among Graphic artists, Photographers, and Publishing authorities. PaintShop Pro is one of the most popular applications available for handling TIF images.

  • Add another TIF file to merge with Join method. Repeat this step for other TIF documents you want to merge.
  • Call Merger class Save method and specify the filename for the merged TIF file as parameter.
// Load the source TIF file
using (Merger merger = new Merger(@"c:\sample1.tif"))
    // Add another TIF file to merge
    // Merge TIF files and save result

NOTE: You may merge other TIF formats like TIFF in the same way as shown above. For this provide files by specifying their names with extension.
