If you open the TIF files you can use file save as and change the file type to JPG. If they're 16 bit files you'll need to go to image mode and change them to 8 bit before you can save as JPG.

I'd keep the RAW files because you amy want to process them in a different way at a later date.

I always save my RAW files. This is the original, and can be considered as a negative for the purpose of future processing. You may fid, as I have, that there are other RAW converters that do a better job than DiMage viewer, and want to reprocess some of you shots.

I take it one step further by converting the RAW files into Adobe Digital Negatives. That way I won't have to worry about whether new programs will support my RAW formats.
