How to create a fax-ready tiff with photometric interpretation of "min-is-white" from PDF?

Question: How can I use VeryPDF PDF to Image Converter to create a fax-ready tiff that has photometric interpretation of "min-is-white"?

Answer: Most black and white TIFF images are saved such that 0 = White and 1 = Black. This equates to a Photometric value of 0 for MinIsWhite and 1 for MinIsBlack. VeryPDF PDF to Image Converter will output tiff file as "min-is-white" by default. As to convert PDF to fax-ready tiff file, please choose option Class F TIFF. This software also supports other compression tiff methods like PACKBITS, CCITT Fax4/Fax3, LZW, Run-Length, JPEG, JBIG2, JPEG2000, FlateDecode.
