As reported at
ImageCreateTrueColor and others does not work correctly when using
pdflib > 4.0.x and PHP > 4.2.x and reading the image from memory (reading from
file seems to work though).

Excerpt from forum and configuration information below.

$im = ImageCreate(100, 100);
$pim = pdf_open_memory_image($pdf, $im);

$im = ImageCreateTrueColor(100, 100);
$pim = pdf_open_memory_image($pdf, $im);

$im = ImageCreateFromJPEG("file.jpg");
$pim = pdf_open_memory_image($pdf, $im);

PHP 4.2.3
GD 2.0.8
PDFLib 4.0.3 (compiled with default options)

Please try using this CVS snapshot:
For Windows:
 [2002-12-03 05:32 UTC] tb at scarptor dot net
Clarification: 256 color images can be created with
ImageCreate, however ImageCreateTrueColor and possibly 
other calls intended to create images with more than 256 colors fails.

Tried with the latest snapshot, 200212031030 and
unfortunately it didn't work either.

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

In case this was a PHP problem, snapshots of the sources are packaged
every three hours; this change will be in the next snapshot. You can
