File wise PDF and EPS are the main types of high quality, although mainly for vector output, Tif's are good for images as they are usually a higher dpi.

For cutting a hairline outline with minimal points will give you a clean cut.

What work are you outputting?

It really depends on the source of the images and whether they have been altered to be a smaller file size and DPI, look for images that are 300DPI+

If they have been downsampled or reduced then there will be pixelisation if you make them that size.
