VoodooPad images pages save as TIFFs

When creating an image page in VoodooPad, is there any way to have it not convert the image to a TIFF? I'm adding JPGs, but they're ending up as TIFFs and using 10-20x as much space as a result. I'd rather it didn't convert images to different formats.

    As to why and how I found this, I noticed that a VP document seemed much, much larger than expected. I found that if I add an image page and drag in a 5.4 MB JPG, the VP document size goes up by more than 90 MB. If I double-click the image in VP, it opens in Preview as a TIFF with a file size of 93.7 MB. That's going to make it difficult or impossible for me to use VP, so I hope there's a setting or something I can do to prevent this format conversion.
