Smile Storage file types

Im just wondering what type of file is best to use to save my photos.
When I get them printed I need to have them saved as TIFF's in order to get the best quality and maximise the potential of printing a large size.
However TIFFs are large files and take up lots of room and as such I am wondering if there is any way I can save the images as a smaller file for storage purposes and then change to a TIFF when I'm going to get it printed.
I know this cannot be done from Jpeg to TIFF because whilst a Jpeg is a far smaller size it also irreversably decreases the the quality of the image.
Any other suggestions? Cheers

[edit]I don't know of any photo file type that you can switch to and from without loss. Standard file compression may be your anwer[end edit]

You could try something like WinRar (it has a 40 day trial period) to compress a bunch of photos, then extract them when needed. The compression should be loss-less.
