My advice would be to save your files in TIFF format. If you enable
LZW compression, the file size will be significantly reduced without
losing quality (unlike JPEG, and to some degree PNG).
PNG is just as lossless as TIFF with LZW compression. There are ways
of lossily compressing PNGs but they are non-standard and GIMP does
not implement them as far as I know.
Either will suffice in this case as photoshop reads both, though its
support for PNG in certain situations (mostly having to do with 16
bits per channel images) is sub-par.
