I'm looking for free tiff viewer for Windows. I see many of them in Internet, dot sure what to choose. Just very simple to see tiff files. And which doesn't install any additional (ad) software.

  • Isn't this already a built-in feature of Windows?

  • Supports TIFF files among others.
  • Free.

I'm curious though what files you have which cannot be viewed by Windows' photo viewer.

  • Installed. Get error: Decode error ! Invalid or unsupported TIF file.

  • @Alex I guess your file has been corrupted somehow. You could try an online repair service (note: I've never used it and I wouldn't upload confidential data.).

  • @Alex I'm glad you finally managed to open it. It would be great if you posted an answer yourself, so you can then accept it :)

I wasn't able to open some TIFF files using standard Windows applications and even IrfanView. But I downloaded brava! reader and then I opened these files. I don't know why is this, maybe some specific options for these files.


This one embeds itself into web browsers http://www.alternatiff.com/ -- Being that internet explorer is part of windows, it works there as well. I found it to be very useful for me.

  • I don't need TIFF for browser.
