Default OK to change photo file formats?

I use digital photos in publications I produce for three of my customers.

In the past, I've sent photos by e-mail to my commercial print shop after importing them as JPEGs and converting them to TIF images for editing and enhancement.

The printer and I are limited to using dial-up modems, and the TIF images take a long time to transmit.

I've been wondering if I can change the procedure and speed things up by converting my photos from TIFs back to JPEGs before e-mailing them to the print shop.

Will this work without degrading the quality of the photos?

I'm concered about possibly losing image quality if I import a JPEG, convert it to a TIF, edit the TIF, and then convert it back to a JPEG before e-mailing it to the print shop.

I don't have a lot of experience at this sort of thing, so I'd appreciate any suggestions and comments. Thanks.
