I was trying to create a PDF with some modified TIFFs.
The TIFFs were opened, manipulated and flattened in Photoshop to reduce file size.
I then took a few TIFFs and tryed to create a new PDF.
When the PDF was created I zoomed into one of the pages.
Noticed that the Photoshop editing has shown thru (all of the good and removed editing).
It was like all of the Photoshop editing had come thru, all though I had flattened the image at its final output.
I then tryed to create another PDF.
I took the flattened TIFF images and saved them as PDFs in Photoshop.
This helped. However, the file size was super huge.
The 'reduce file size' destroyed the clarity of the pictures.
Is there a way to create a PDF from flattened TIFFs without all of the Photoshop edits to come along?

What you're describing does not make sense - the pixels in a TIFF file are what they are, there's no "history". You will only see in the PDF what is exported from Photoshop, so that's where the mistake has happened. Are you exporting the layer pyramid?
Thanks for the response.
I tryed to reply showing some images. But this forum will not let me insert a TIFF file that is less than 100kb. The notice constantly says the content type isn't allowed. I also tryed to insert the same file as an JPEG. Same result.
Sorry for the delay.
I generated a side-by-side Photoshop image of my concern.
On the left side is the flattened image that Photoshop generates. On the right is what I want to put into a PDF.
As you can see, the left image is 'bluer' than the right. I don't want that.
It appears that Photoshop, when flattening an image, almost ignores any of the correction layers as seen on the right side image.
Is there a setting within Photoshop that controls what info it uses when flattening the layers to a single Background layer?
