You should all have a look at ImageMagick (http://www.imagemagick.org). This package writes all kinds of TIFF files out of the box, with full support for IPTC metadata, JPEG, as well as a well a special pyramid tiled TIFF. We call this PTIFF. You can combine this with JPEG to get a nice multi-resolution compressed TIFF file that still opens in Photoshop!
