Hi there!

 Im currently having a strange effect. I use PNG images in my XSL to create PDFs.
I have real performance problems (the XSL is quite complex and looks fancy with many images)

If I use PNGs it takes 30s to create a PDF.
If I use JPGs it takes only 2,5s to create the same PDF (JPGs created from the PNGs)

Im creating the PDFs over the FOP_IF and with concatenation of more FOP_IF files.

Can anybody explain this to me? I would need to use PNGs as the printer likes them more.
Is there any other format which is even more faster? (Giff or anything else?)

Thanks in advance!!!
