Find attached a package tiftopng that, in conjunction with the convert  
part of ImageMagic (comes as part of the default install for MacTeX)  
will automatically convert tif->png (note: not tiff) if needed when  
using pdflatex. Try it; if it doesn't work make sure that you are  
using the --shell-escape option for pdflatex and try again.
