Default tiff images bog down document printing

I create fairly large documents, and have been scanning in maps and other
exhibits (office xp, Microteck scanmaker 4900). They come off the scanner as
JPEG files, and although the document gets pretty big, 10,000 to 15,000 kb my
computer and printer seem to handle them ok.

I am now able to find the maps and exhibits on the internet, at a county
website, but they are tiff files. When I download them, and insert them in
the document, both my computer and the printer seem to choke on them.

In an effort to get around the problem, I have tried to covert the tiff
files to jpeg, ( easy graphic converter 1.2) but the new files are much
larger than the origional tiff and they still seem to choke my computer.

Am I doing something wrong? Do coverted files have some sort of marker that
makes them hard to read?

I don't see this as a question specifically about Microsoft Word--and
certainly not relevant to tables in Word.
