Inserting(adding) images into pdf

Hi

 Is there any way to insert images into pdf through ror. I have

tried pdf:writer and used pdf.image.Still I am not getting the result.
It
is said that images are not supported by the pdfwriter.rb file I am
using.

Earlier I was not able to insert tables but including Simpletable.rb
file solved my problem.

So my doubt is there any extra file needed for inserting images?.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

How about:

pdf = PDF::Writer.new(:paper => “A4”, :orientation => :landscape)

y = pdf.absolute_top_margin - 15
x = pdf.absolute_left_margin - 22
pdf.add_image_from_file(“public/images/rails.png”, x, y)

Thanks Dom

But I used this command and its not working. One conclusion I have
reached is that the pdfwriter.rb file I downloaded from
http://www.hollo.org/pdfwriter/ does not support images. Its mentioned
in that site as its limitations.Can you tell me what should I do and if
there is any download available which supports images too, please tell
me

Thanks for your suggestion

Thank You sir,

I installed ruport as you told. Also I have pdfwriter gem installed. But
still I cant get the images inserted into pdf. As I already mentioned
the pdfwriter.rb file I am using(inside models) doent support images it
supports aonly simple pdf. So is there any other class file that I can
use to get the images inserted into pdf?

Thanks once again
