The images that are in the xdocs/images directory
are examples of some pre-prepared images. These are
already made with a tool like The Gimp. Yes GIF, PNG,
JPG, whatever.

A generated PNG from SVG is created by Forrest while
you are watching. If is does not find a pre-prepared
PNG image, then it will look for a matching .svg file
to generate an image. The project image banner at the
top of a 'forrest seed site' is one example.
