Yes, the .tif files are photos. They open in photo viewer. This is actually the first time I got this file format. I got them from an organisation in New Zealand. This is not too much of a problem because they are all circuit diagrams. I can make out the text in them from long familiarity with the equivalent technical terms of those languages.

Service Manuals, on the other hand, always come in .pdf format and they all open in Adobe Reader. Because they open in Adobe Reader I am assuming (correctly I hope), that they are genuine .pdf documents. These are the ones I am mainly concerned about. They have detailed instructions (specific for make and model), for calibration, alignment and trouble shooting. This is difficult to manage with the rudimentary method I employ with the circuits.

leaving out .tif, is there anything that I can use for .pdf documents?

Thank you,
