Why is WHAT??? You need to Trim the posting more precisely...
If you mean "why TIFF?": Since TIFF provides no-artefacts storage at
the same size as what you got from your JPEG (which WILL create artefacts).
Why 8-bit? I already discussed that; and since your input is 8-bit,
most probably you won't get any advantage from 16-bit. (Well,
currently GIMP won't even produce 16-bit...)
Why compressed? To save size...
