Dealing with PDF and TIF files

I have a situation where I have to convert "PDF to TIF" and sometimes "TIF to PDF". From my understanding, both file formats support vector graphics (rough meaning: quality is not lost at any scale).

Re: Getting started with NConvert

Getting started with NConvert

Hi, last year I tried one of the Xn software to batch convert PDF files to image files but the issue was that the quality was lost. I think at the time I read that NConvert was the way to go, but I could not get it running, so I'm trying again. It's difficult to find information on the following: (1...
