There used to be a PDF export option in Photoshop, but it's gone in CS4.

What replaced it is Bridge, however no matter what I do, Bridge ends up resizing my image. The physical dimensions (cm/inches) in the final PDF are not what they are in Photoshop.

Any tips on exporting an image without messing up its size?

(Clarification: I want the final PDF to contain a page of the size I specify, with a white background, and my image positioned somewhere on this page such that the image width/height in cm is exactly the same in the PDF as it was in Photoshop.)

What about using PDFcreator? Print to PDF from the printing menu in PS (and print the PDF ?) – Shiki May 15 '10 at 13:43
@Shiki that might be good enough, thanks. Didn't occur to me for some reason, even though I often use it from other programs... – romkyns May 17 '10 at 17:01

Choose File, Save As, and then choose Photoshop PDF as the type. No need to go through Bridge.
