    Standard method is to export to PDF, then open inPhotoshop and save as TIFF.

    Well you are certainly entitled to ask for a new feature to export TIFF.


    Whether that will have a lot of support is debatable since most use for TIFF format would be to place in a new document, I think, and ID already allows placing of both native pages and PDF, both of which have big advantages for anything with type or vector objects. Why do YOU want to export TIFF?


    In the meantime, there is no direct way to get TIFF out of InDesign, so you have to start with some format that can be exported -- JPEG, EPS, SWF, FLA or PDF, all of which would need to be converted in some editor, if not necessarily Photoshop.

    I'd love export to TIFF too!  We are one of the largest wedding printers in the US, and most of our back end workflow flows with TIFF.
