    Default Problem in TIFF Conversion


    I am trying to convert any pdf or doc or xls docuemnt to tiff. Conversion is taking place and I am able to view those in tiff format. But the size of the tiff format is nearly 8 times higher than the original document. What could be the problem?
    Can anyone please help me out with this?????

    That actually sounds about right. Remember that TIFF takes a lot more space because it's storing each pixel, and most modern file formats are compressed (PDF is, don't think Excel is).

    One thing you could try is checking to make certain that TIFF compression is turned on, but at 8x for a PDF, my guess is that it is indeed turned on (you normally have to take action to turn it off).
