I have two questions about TIFF's differences/similarities with JPEG:

  1. Does TIFF have a thumbnail (like the ones that JPEG have)?

Yes, it can.

But technically JFIF does not have a thumbnail - thumbnails were added via a couple of different extensions to the JFIF format (Photoshop, EXIF, etc.).

  1. Does TIFF compression happen before parsing (like in JPEG)? What is the procedure in the compression of the TIFF file?

That depends on how you define parsing.

And the compression depends on what type of compression you want to use.

Have you read the TIFF specification?
