Use a tool that saves .tif files as .pdf. For anything where image
quality matters, you are better off converting individual images to
pdf using a tool that gives you control over the way the image is
saved. Pdftex can't have a complete image processing system, so the
ability to import images should be viewed as a convenience only. Some
free tools don't use compression (due to the LZW patent that has since
expired in many jurisdictions) when saving to .tif format, so you may
need to update your tools for tif images if size is a concern. Look
at <http://www.libtiff.org/libtiff.html> for help. The binary
packages should include tiff2pdf and also tiffcp (to manipulate tiff
files), and tiffinfo (to check the properties of the tiff file).
