Good point. I selected TIFF not because that's the format of the final output, but because it's my preferred format for bitmapped source files. I prefer TIFF because (a) it's platform-independent, at least in uncompressed form; (b) compression, if you use it, is lossless; and (c) it's a standard of the publishing industry. I prefer to have the original in a high-resolution TIFF file. I can always convert and downsample it for the Web.

As for vector graphics, I prefer to create them in Corel Draw and export them to JPEGs for the Web or Windows Metafiles for print use. I've found that most Windows applications handle WMF files fairly well.

As you can gather, I work on a Windows platform. If I were working on a Mac, I would probably prefer EPS or AI for vector graphics.
