Hmm...that is an interesting point. I will dig into the documentation
for the relavent part for detailed information. I used png images for
the document as those were the only ones made available to me. Getting
tiff images might be difficult as some artists don't have access to high
speed internet connections e.g someone in Australia has a dialup only
and gets images made from a photographer living in the city.

Thanks for the information though,
