I need to display an image on the PDF, which will depend on characteristics of the view, but am currently unable to do so. What I have is below - the text "Look here!" prints well, but the image never does.

Should this be working, or is there an alternative way to include images in the PDF?

if($variable==1) {
print "Look here! <img src='http://www.mysite.com/redbox.JPG'>";
} else {
print "Look here! <img src='http://www.mysite.com/bluebox.JPG'>";

I'm using version 7 of Views PDF and the only way I managed to display an image is to use another PDF as background template.
Images from fields from some content are also not appearing on my viewsPDF generated PDF...

Does anybody know how to display a image field on the viewsPDF generated PDF?

You can just add an image field to your views, and set the formatter to image, and Views PDF should be able to render it as HTML on PDF.

I am doing a webform view and can't add image fields, why can this not render HTML image tags and display them? Is this a bug?
