TIFF 6.0 acts as an image format scheme used between exchange
financial institutions. However, TIFF is very flexible and
is designed to accommodate a variety of uses. This flexibility
can cause applications to experience problems.
The ANS X9.100-181 standard defines the most commonly
supported and least problematic uses of TIFF fields and their
values for the exchange of images. This standard does not
change TIFF standard and only address G4 bilevel image (black/white)
compressions within the TIFF 6.0. The ANS X9.100-181
standard helps efficient interoperable check image exchange
among financial institutions.
