When converting from TIFF->PDF, the entire TIFF infrastructure/file format is removed and only the bits/pixels are left. Whether those pixels are touched is up to the conversion tool and whatever transformations (color, compression, etc.) it wishes to perform - but in general, it's not necessary.

What about the case where the TIFF image is comprised of multiple strips? In this case, it seems that some translation is necessary.
