Embeds a bitmap image into the PDF. Recognized image formats are PNG, JPEG, GIF and TIFF.

There are several restrictions on the type of image:



The size of the image in the document is a result of the size of the actual bitmap in pixels multiplied by the dpi of the image. The dpi may be specified by the image (common in TIFF, possible in PNG and JPEG) or may be set explicitly using the dpi attribute. If it's not set by the image or explicitly, it defaults 72dpi - which means 1 pixel = 1 point. Alternatively the width and height attributes may be set to force the size of the image.

These show the three methods of inserting an image

<img src="myimage.jpg"/>                           <!-- embed at images default resolution -->
<img src="myimage.jpg" dpi="200"/>                 <!-- embed at 200dpi -->
<img src="myimage.jpg" width="150" height="100"/>  <!-- embed at a specified size -->
