The TIF file extension is a raster graphics file format originally created in 1986 making it one of the older image file formats available. The format was created by Aldus Corporation (Now Adobe) for use in Desktop Publishing software is still a popular format which is still in use today.
The format has evolved over time from its original use in DTP applications, Fax machine software, Optical Character Recognition software and more. TIF files are binary and can contain one or more images arranged in a rectangualr data format within the file.
The ZIP file is one of the most common types of compressed file types available and is widely used to compress any file type and give great compression results leading to smaller file sizes. ZIP files were originally released in 1989 and over time the format has received many revisions.
ZIP archives can contain any number of folders and files and can use many different compression algorithms to perform the file compression, though DEFLATE is the most common one in use. The format has built in support in many operating systems including Mac OS and Microsoft Windows.
