Almost any graphics programme should be able to view a .tif or .tiff file.

Try Irfanview - it's free from click here

I will just throw a little spanner in the works- Kodak use tiff but their version is different to anyone else's, unless you legally buy Kodak software you will not be able to view them.

I save majority of my scanned photographs in .tif format and find that Adobe, CorelPhotopaint (old version 7), the Kodak image viewer bundled with Window (98se in my case) and Serif Photoplus 8 all read these files without problems. Also PCA included a Graphics Viewer on one of their magazine disks - useful for thumbnails and slide shows - that also read .tif format without probs.

Hope this of some help.

I usually have them with my better half....:-)

But, as jazzypop rightly points out, the splendid Irfanview fits the bill perfectly.

You can also do slideshows, view thumbnails etc. Make sure, if you decide to use it, to also download the various codecs.
