I have a document which I need to compile PDF/A-1b compatible, which means that transparency is not allowed.

I have (several) tikz sources directly in the document, and I think they look better with transparency. I have to check if this holds true when flattened.

For flattening transparency, I have seen that ps2pdf -dHaveTransparency=false (or ps2pdf13) should work on pdfs. Is there a way to use tikz or LaTeX directly to flatten transparency?

  • No insofar as *TeX can not manipulate included PDFs on the fly (LuaTeX can in theory); you need external programs. – Martin Schröder Dec 19 '13 at 8:02

*TeX can not manipulate included PDFs on the fly (LuaTeX can in theory); you need external programs, so no.
