I know gif's with transparency are not working properly in PDF. But I really
don't recommend using them because of the patent issues and also their poor
quality in general. Qt doesn't use the gif Format until you say so when

I always use png or jpg for Images on the web. Much nicher and free. Don't
support patented technologies.
