The workaround for me (with regard to the 72dpi image problem) has been 
to create a JPG with a resolution of 300dpi (note: large file size), 
and then scale the image down if necessary. This produces high 
resolution logos for placement in our FOP-rendered pages without 

Probably the most important thing to remember about adding 
external-graphics to FOP-rendered pages is this:

IIRC, FOP has a bug in it causing it to go into an infinite loop, if 
the graphic is too large to fit on a page.

Good luck!
