    Technically, an "original negative" would be a Raw file or psd with layers. The tif is a valid printable pdf file but was created specifically for the print file. In fact, whatever you send the file to imprente, they make it pdf before printing.
    pardon my English "Google Translate".

    Tiff or pdf

    use almost always in RGB TIFF files when working on rip "onyx, etc. wasatch" rasteriza much faster and the resulting color (gamut) is much broader. The pdf is definitely the standard in the graphics industry but on the large format still has qualque limitation.

    So far I've only been told to use PDF for print. Have yet to be asked for TIFF.

    For Print always use PDF file in CMYK-300 DPI Files.

    TIFF it's only image and if you want to import in an other software (indesign, illustrator) before printing

    PDF it's text/vector and image (use zip compression to preserve quality) and for print directly

    and sorry for my English.

    depends how you're printing. generally those two are lossless and they compress different ways. both work great for printing large, tiffs are superior when printing massive, however.

    A PDF is a vector format and a TIFF is a raster format. But keep in mind a PDF can contain raster images within as well.

    yes, i think i'm agree with you. I prefer eps for vector. PDF for photo (increasing speed than tiff)

    Tiff vs Pdf

    HI, you can think of these in this way

    PDF is an evolutionary development from Postscript , It can be considered to support , vector data, raster Data, Layers , fonts etc .

    Tiffs are considered Flat files. with or without ICC profiles and generally without high compression (if there is compression its almost always lossless) unlike the jpeg standard.

    For anyone familiar with RIPs, Raster Image Processors take PDF's etc and turn them into large 1-bit tiffs (4 in a copier) after applying colour management etc as the laser involved only understand on or off

    Regards epoch

    I always print as an eps....but if its a hugh file with a lot of bitmaps in ill print with a tiff. Quality and color gamut seems to be better for me with an eps file

    Why would you use tiff if the pdf can be sported with the dpi you want?
