Tiff image not working in Chrome

We have a button in our dashboard  where Tiff image should be opened when clicked on button object. Its working fine in Internet explorer but we have an issue when opening in Chrome. The pop-up screen shows for a few seconds and then closes but the image is not displayed. Do we need to change any settings in the browser/expression to make it work

HI Rajesh,

TIFF format image is not supported by the Chrome browser. You are seeing the pop up as chrome is trying to open it using an external object. There are extensions to use in chrome to be able to view TIFF image.

Generally TIFF is not used with web development due to its huge size and rather old format.
Please use a JPEG or PNG file for better compatibility.

You can read about browser compatibility here.

Comparison of web browsers - Wikipedia

Thanks and regards,

Sumit

I wrote an extension that displays tiff files in Chrome and will allow zooming and moving the image around page.  You can get it on the Chrome Store Inline Tiff Viewer - Chrome Web Store

That is much required but being an extension , many organisations will not agree to it. There are severe security constraints!
