Subject Re: Image Print size and quality

Pascal you have been really helpful.
For the completeness of this thread I paste the XSLT code that solves my 

<fo:external-graphic src="{$imageLink}" border="solid 3px"

This way the border goes around the image without leaving any white space.
Thank you a lot.
