SVS files are now saved with the .svs file extension.


Starting in uScope Navigator v4.5, SVS files are saved with the .svs file extension instead of the .tif file extension.

SVS files are a modified version of the Tiled TIFF image file format. Since TIFF images may be opened in many image viewers, these files were originally saved with the .tif file extension. However, this prevented these images from opening in an SVS viewer.

If you have .tif images saved by prior versions of uScope Navigator, you may simply rename them to .svs files to open them with any of the SVS image viewers.
