I've got it working but all the tiffs I have but have been experimenting with using different kinds of tiffs (same compression 4) and ran accross a tiff that blows sky high. I get the pdf message when opening up the pdf file that says: "Read less image data then expected." usually when I get an error like this it means my stream length is messed up, but I checked that and it all checks out fine. Could this message be the result of a different kind of compression 4 then what I've been accounting for, lets say in the decode params???

It the tiff is multiple strip, then you will get this error message. You
need to push the data into a single strip before you insert it into the
PDF document.
