Sirv will automatically serve TIFF files in the most optimal web image format (normally WebP). Simply set a size for your image and it'll be instantly served from Sirv's dynamic imaging engine.

TIFF is a raster graphic format, meaning that each pixel is kept as its original - without any compression. This maintains the image in its highest quality, making it a popular format for print.
