Real-world photographic images rarely come out larger after compression, but
I can generate such an image in about 30 seconds in Photoshop.  I did that
just now and got one that is 20% larger after compression.

Since JPEG is lossless and TIFF is not, this is to be expected.

JPEGs are virtually incompressible to begin with, which is why attempts to
losslessly compress them further will often produce larger files.
