    If preview says that the file is corrupted then you need to get a new version of that TIF file.
    Are you sure that it is a TIF file or just a file with the extension TIF ?
    What version of OS X are you running ?

    Cheers ... McBie

    Hello and welcome to the forum! Member McBie is correct, i.e. is the file really a TIFF and is it corrupted - you need to download it again and/or check on its validity - Preview easily opens this image file type, so that should not be the issue - let us know your results. Dave
    If you are helped, increase the reputation of the poster -

    there are two observations:
    a) file extension is .tif and not .tiff
    b) OS is 10.10.4

    Your suggestions please

    My suggestion is to read posts #2 & #3 again and get a new version of that TIF file.
