Yes, uncompressed and PackBits are all OK. LZW support is limited
to flavors that permit concatenation of strip data into a single stream
without decompression - these are TIFFs with no tiles and/or alpha channel.
Note also that among GIFs, we only support non-interlaced ones.

See doc/spec.pdf, section 4 "Graphic formats", for a list of all supported
graphic formats and their flavors. Or, the same thing on our site:

Anyhow, if an image format is not supported, the respective warning
should appear at the console.
