OK, so this confirms the problem is with your source documents, not with 
  Forrest itself. Now to figure out what that problem is...

Yes, Forrest will handle both of these by default.

This is a very old version of Forrest, it would make sense for you to 
upgrade to the most recent version as, of course, it is more stable and 
you will find it much easier to get complete support here on the user 
lists. Most of us can't remember issues from 2-3 years ago (and may devs 
weren't here then).


Do the following:

- forrest run
- http://localhost:8888/path/to/file/with/broken/image.pdf

Now, inspect the logs that have been recorded in 

In particular you are interested in error.log an core.log

Post any parts that look like they may be relevant to the generation of 
your image in the PDF file.

Also, please answer these questions:

- where is the image located?
- what is the XDoc source that you are using
