I'm not sure what you mean by "will not distort." TIFF is a raster
format consisting of individual pixels. It WILL distort if resized
beyond a narrow range. The graphics that will not distort are those
in a vector format such as .svg or .eps (unless it's an eps that
includes a raster image).

What is the format of the pic you want to use *before* you save it
as a .tiff? How much resizing will you be doing? With raster
graphics, it's always wise to size the graphic to fit the size it
will be in your printed document, with enough pixels to give you at
least 300 dots per inch OF THE FINISHED SIZE. (Dots per inch is
meaningless without reference to the actual size the graphic will be
printed at.)
