Topic: PDF to Word (via TIF)

I am regularly called upon to insert PDF images into word documents. The PDF images are of programmes created in Project Management Packages such as Open Plan, Primavera & MSP2000. The image can be quite detailed so good resolution is paramount. By saving as TIF and inserting the TIF file as a picture into word, I can get the right result. The problem is that the TIF file can be several orders of magnitude larger than the original PDF (eg. a 12K PDF converted to TIF can be as much as 1M!). If several TIF files are inserted into the document, the file becomes enormous (a major problem if the document is to be mailed through a server with file size restrictions). Is there a better way of converting a PDF image into Word without compromising on resolution and file size?

Many thanks in anticipation
