Wouldn't it just be easier to rename the files?

TIFF files aren't a very web-friendly format to begin with. I'd recommend JPEG, GIF or PNG formats.

I didn't think browsers could view tif files at all (at least, not without a plugin). What browser and version are you using?
Did you need to install a plugin to get it to render tif files?
