So it may just be some quirk of the HP software. HP's response to you is clearly nonsense from someone reading off a card. TIFF was the original DTP format, and has been preferred in print production over JPEG for years.

The PDF is probably just a PDF "wrapper" around JPEG data.

Resaving the PDF or JPEG in Photoshop as a TIFF should yield a normal file with no degradation.
Please see my reply to Howard Allen. Alas, I don't use Photoshop but, rather, Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo Ultimatte X2.
