QuarkXpress and Tiff files

I have QuarkXpress 3.32 running on Win95.
Why is it that bmp files in Quark look great, but when I try to pull in the images aftrer converting them to tiff files (for CMYK output) that they degenerate to a very pixellated appearance? (The tiff files look fine in other packages though - such as Picture Publisher)
PS. This is NOT the same problem as the one you get with a fill of 'none'

This is because quark has used a 8bit representation of your image. If it had to put a big nice smooth picture in there your file would be massive and very slow to work on.

When you go to print it should come out fine.
