Subject: Graphics image question
Date: Sat, 20 Jan 2001 14:11:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.30.0101200808560.1309-100000@localhost.localdomain> (raw)
Message-ID: <20010120141100.p81LA9_xplkjLVEvfkGNOgBvSs-W5MyOmEj_ZcSBMYU@z> (raw)

Hello everyone.  I have a DocBook document that has some images in it.  I
use the Cygnus tools to publish the SGML sources.  Now, db2html does a
great job, but db2ps and db2pdf gives some LaTeX errors about gif images
not being supported.  I switched to jpeg images, but the resulting
Postscript and PDF files look absolutely horrible (in one case, each pixel
of the image was rendered as a 50 pixel block, which is obviously
unacceptable).

So, does anyone know if there is anything I can do to get gif's or jpeg's
working?  If not, is there another image format that I should consider?
The only thing I would require from another format would be that it must
work with web browsers as well (so no eps files).

Any suggestions?
