When I'm busy tweaking clients' TIFF images prior to printing I sometimes forget to flatten the layers before saving. Although the reminder that pops up about layers creating larger files is good, could we possibly have a button available in that window that allows the image to be flattened at that point....from that window? It would be a lot simpler than cancelling out a couple windows, flattening the image and then saving again. (My workflow, FWIW: Process/Tweak RAW images in ACR, Open in Photoshop and uprez to size, sharpen and save as 16-bit TIFFs, sometimes additionally tweaking levels or curves.)

Sure. Just uncheck "Layers":
