John -

Tiffs would definitely be better if you are burning them on a CD to 
mail.  For those who are sending them electronically, a jpeg would be a 
smaller file size and not clog up your lines as long.

The problem with jpegs is that they lose information every time they are 
resaved.  If you just open them, use them and close them without resaving 
them every time, there will be no loss of information.
