Default Zipping TIFF's

If I take several TIFF's, and put them in a .zip file, what will the effect on the images be?

I mean, the original TIFF is uncompressed, but when I create a .zip file it will be compressed. But will this form of compression affect the image quality?

Regards,

Steve

Zip is a lossless compression .. So the file can be recovered without any loss.
