Converting TIFF to JPG on a Mac

In a previous post I published a screenshot from my Mac. However, this wasn’t done as simply as you might think!

The application I used to take the screenshot, Grab, saves the file as a TIFF. And unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t accept photos in a TIFF format. This presented a graphic design problem: how do I convert a TIFF file into a JPG?

Here’s how:

1. Open your TIFF file in Preview.

TIFF in Preview

2. Go to “File” > “Export”.

3. From the “Format” drop down menu, select JPEG (or your desired format).

4. Hit “Save”!

Easy.
