You don't have to convert the files from a filesystem. You'll basically be sending data over a network so it gets converted to TCP stuff anyway and they don't even have to know you have linux. jpegs are jpegs. Use zip instead of bzip or tar or tgz.
Mostly, you just have to find out what program they have to access the file. For example, if they need a document in microsoft office format, you'll have to convert OpenOffice docs to word docs or rtf. Or convert them to pdf so they can read them. If they need jpegs and you have jpegs, you're good to go. If they need .tif and you have .jpegs, then you'll have to convert your jpegs to tif files.
It's all about the file type, not the file system type. Now one thing you will have to watch for is that Windows doesn't care about case or spaces like linux does. So if you have two jpegs, picture1.jpg and picture1.JPG, those are two files in linux but only one file for windows.
