If you want a series of decreases to be as unnoticeable and as close to seamless as possible, what decrease technique do you use?

Depends on what side you are doing your decreases on. k 2 tog for right side of work, ssk for left side of work

It depends on the pattern you are doing whereabouts you put the decrease. For example, if you are doing cables then next to a cable panel makes a good place, otherwise at the beginnings/ends of rows is a good option.

This is what I am using currently. I am wondering if there is an even flatter and less noticeable technique.

I have been using K2togL for my left slanting decreases. It is much flatter than K2tog tbl or ssk. It takes a little patience and practice but once you get it, it is fairly easy and quick. Here is a tutorial: https://yarnsub.com/articles/techniques/k2togl/
