I have no idea how your communication channel is configured.  I would
use sRGB 8-bit TIFF (do not know whether deflation makes sense [called
ZIP in GIMP]) with no downscale, or at most to-75% downscale (to-65%
should be OK with most pocket cameras).

Probably true (never used UFRaw ;-).  On the other hand, AFAIK, GIMP
has practically no tools to do photo-related work either (one can't
even apply a curve to L channel without going through a hundred

Hope this helps,
