I would agree with Derek on using SVG as well.
Not realizing Derek already did an example of that i did as well:
here is the SVG code I came up with:
preserveAspectRatio=”xMinYMin meet” viewBox=”0 0 5110 6600″>
I think the only issue would be the linearGradient. The Renderx page says its supported ( http://www.renderx.com/reference.html#SVG ) but I don't think the the XEP Renderx version that xmetal comes bundled with supports linearGradients. If your going to use it for high quality print you may end up with banding as well. its a bit more tricky to add noise and dithering to SVG images.
Is there any downside to using SVG image? Even if RenderX supports SVG, might the end user PDF reader not support it or be it an older PDF reader or third party reader?
FYI,I think the code tag style on this forum is slight to wide.
