Tiff's are too large for online printer

Hello

I am new at this.
I'm using a Nikon D850.

I have stacked the photos and made my adjustments.

I want to have a 24" x 36" print made by one of the online photo printers.

I'm wanting to retain as much detail as possible.
I would like the viewer to be able to stand very close to the photo.

My tiff file is 466 MB .
My online printer - Printique has a maximum transfer of -

"Max image file size 200 MB, JPEG 8 bit sRGB basline (Standard),
TIFF 8-bit sRGB (no compression)"

I'm not sure how I should change the file to meet the printer requirements and
yet still retain as much detail as possible.

Any help will be appreciated!

I would convert to JPG at the highest quality available by the tool you are using (HeliconSoft or other editors). You won't lose significant detail. If you had to keep TIFF then you will need to use an editor to resize which will likely affect quality more than the simple compression to JPG

Resave the file with LZW compression turned on
