In this tutorial we will see how to convert tiff to pdf in python, TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) it is used to store raster graphics and images, The key feature about this file format is the ability to handle wide variety of image types.

Install Pillow Library In Python

To do TIFF to PDF conversion using python I will use the pillow library which allows us to convert images to different formats, It will allow us to convert tiff file to pdf with just 4 lines of python code and you can also use it to convert other formats.

pip install Pillow

Copy and paste the above command in your terminal it will install the library in your system.

Python Code To Convert TIFF To PDF File

from PIL import Image

with Image.open("test.tiff") as img:
    # Converts the tiff to rgb
    img = img.convert("RGB")
    img.save("output.pdf", "PDF")

In the code we first import the Image module from the pillow library, The second line opens the tiff file using the image module from pillow, As you can see it converts tiff file to RGB before saving it to a pdf file it is necessary because it cannot save mode RGBA.
