images.  To convert your TIFF to a pyramidal image, you can use 
ImageMagick >= 6.7.3-8:

   convert input.tiff -compress jpeg -quality 90 \
     -define tiff:tile-geometry=256x256 ptif:output.tiff

Or VIPS >= 7.28:

   vips tiffsave input.tiff output.tiff --compression=jpeg --Q=90 \
     --tile --tile-width=256 --tile-height=256 --pyramid
