[R] tiff graphics

I frequently insert PDF graphics created with R into Word (Office 2004 for Mac) documents. The documents are created on either a Linux machine (RedHat 9) or a Mac (Tiger). I am using R 2.2.0.

These pdf graphics often lose a great deal of resolution after insertion into Word compared to their high quality when printed as PDF documents. I recently learned that converting the PDF documents to TIFF format (this is easily accomplished in Apple's Preview application) yields documents that can be inserted into Word with no loss of resolution.

Is there any means to create TIFF documents (or some other format [excluding EPS] that will not lose resolution when inserted into Word) directly in R (i.e., so as to avoid the conversion outside of R)?
