Topic: Importing images into PDF documents (on the fly)

I am currently working on a project to programmatically create PDF pages, both text and images, from information typed into a Java applet. I have succeeded in creating text only documents, but I can't embed images.

The type of image is not important as we will control the library but it does need to be of a quality good enough for large scale printing.

I have tried exporting a page from freehand 9 in PDF format and editing the created file, but the object that display's the image is embedded in an encoded stream.

Is there a way of decoding the stream?

I have also tried using the "cm" operator to define a space and the "Im0 Do" operation to draw the image, but to no avail.

Does anyone no of an un-encoded image example on-line?

Thanks in advance.
