    1) TIF, PNG & PSD can all have transparency.

    3) TIF files have a compression option.

    I don't use EPS files often myself. EPS stands for Encapsulated Post Script. The biggest advantage is for printing. I don't believe they are compressed in a traditional sense, but they can be a rather optimized format when compared to a high resolution raster image. The fact that you can import the file at different resolutions without loss (when used correctly) is very nice. That being said you can save raster images to an EPS file as well which looses a lot of the advantages.

    What are you wanting to use these files for? There are several different ways transparency can be used and many of them have limited options on what type of file you use.

    best transparency/compression combination file format is PNG, if that is the goal of your question.
