Overview: Image Tab

Document images are TIFF files (or BMP, JPG, PCX, PDF, or PNG files) created from native document files. Document images appear on the Image tab in the document details pane of Review, if they exist for your case. (If a TIFF or other image file does not exist for a particular record, a TIFF file can be created in Review using the “TIFF on the Fly” feature as explained in Create an Image File (TIFF on the Fly).

Note: Several image activities require privileges that are defined by the administrator. When applicable, additional privilege details are explained for specific procedures.

If you are not able to perform the activities explained in this Help, discuss your privileges with your administrator.
