Hi, Madelyn.

A common program for image viewing is Irfanview: It's probably a bit powerful for your needs. Windows picture and fax viewer may also handle TIFF images; I'm not sure. Irfanview would be good for those users who have their own computers; the P&F viewer, if it supports TIFF, is standard on every Windows computer.

All relatively recent versions of Quicktime should be able to view TIFF images; you can look at for more details. My experience with it has been mostly positive, except for the slow-loading "quick"-start program. It's fairly universal, but there aren't any guarantees that everyone will have it.

I am documenting a web-based product that provides TIFF graphic files as
a secondary format. The graphics are provided first as GIFs, but the
user is offered an option to view, download, and print a TIFF for
professional uses. We have run into the expected problems with this: we
cannot control what software and plug-ins the user can access, so we
cannot guess or offer specific suggestions on troubleshooting the TIFFs
if they don't work automatically. Instead, we offer them some suggested
programs or plug-ins.
