What is iff file? How to open iff files?
The iff file extension is associated with Amiga Interchange File Format that is used to transfer documents to and from Commodore Amiga computers.
The iff file standard is extremely flexible, and allows all a few formats, not only images, including text to be stored inside an IFF file. IFF files can be exported from an Amiga to a PC. The format can also be created on a PC, but the extension of the file name will then change to LBM or to CE (Depending on the application).
However, the basic file structure remains the same. The standard form for IFF image files created on a PC is called ILBM. ILBM is formed by means of compressing all images as planes. This is much slower, but it means that these compressed files will be accessible by any application able to read an IFF file, even if they are exported back to an Amiga.
The iff file extension is also used by obsolete Sun TAAC Image format.
