Add support for tif/tiff import and export #1068
We used to have support for TIFF import and export that implemented in the same way as png, bmp, and jpg, using Qt's built-in functionality. Unfortunately it was not working so it was removed in #948.
Unlike some of the more common formats, tiff is not in the core Qt gui, but is rather a plugin (maintained by Qt). I'm pretty sure the issue was that this plugin wasn't getting loaded properly. Solving this will hopeful be enough to fix the issue and reinclude this format. For more information about Qt image format plugins, see here: https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtimageformats-index.html

TIFF Import / Export works as expected. I recommend closing this issue if you deem it proper.
Note: I'll leave this comment as something I'd like to see later on regarding this format, and for which I'll make a separate issue. One of the qualities of TIFF images is that it can store layers. If possible it would be great that the TIFF export from Pencil2D would allow it to store at least bitmap layer information in the tiff files. It would be interesting as well to consider the vector layer information to be included, however these would have to be rasterized on export and converted into bitmap layers for that to work.
