image format means at best 72DPI on imported images
Image import seems to allow only importation at screen resolution. Thus, if I have a 200 DPI image that is an 8.5X11, it imports considerably larger than the page. It also means that regardless of image imported, one can only show the image at 72DPI. This may be a limitation of PDF itself, or it may be a limitation of the tag. Regardless, it won't work for my purposes.

Note on resolution
8.5x11 is a ratio not a size, however when you develop a PDF with these systems it cannot create a image that's ratio so it picks an arbitrary ratio of 8.5 by 11. This conforms to a 72DPI standard. If you wanted to use 200 DPI you would need to set the 8.5x11 ratio (width and height) in pixels to what conforms to a 200 DPI then place your image. When the image is viewed or printed it will be at 200DPI based on the pixel width you specify. You can also scale your image down until it fits with in the image and leave it at 200DPI which may result in some quality loss. v1.3 will support a scaletofit="true" that will scale your image to the PDF document preportions without effecting the resolution.

image format means at best 72DPI on imported images
I must have missed the SCALE attribute in the image doc. I swore I looked for something like this, but didn't find it. Perhaps I have an old version of the docs? Regardless, reducing my image by 200/72 scale ought to give me the desired effect.

Also, had their not been a note that eval copies receive no support, I'd have emailed before posting ;-)

Tag is very limitted - documentation and examples are worst I've ever seen
I assume the lack of examples showing how to take a rich HTML table and make it a rich PDF file out don't exist becaue it is not possible with this tag. The tag, being a coldfusion tag, doesn't support coldfusion tags. If you have conditional logic, for example to put a value in your pdf file based on whether or not a user selected yes or no at a radio button, your out of luck with this tag.

Where are the examples?
Looks quite interesting.

However, the lack of examples raises a huge red flag...

Examples in Trial
There are examples in the trial download and I found it very easy to configure. My only wish is it supported more HTML tags and CSS.

Well, version 2.2 CLAIMS to support CSS. However I have found this support to be so buggy and incomplete that it's hardly worth the name. (No cascading to speak of, no margin or padding control for divs, no borders, limited support for the body tag, poor selector support, etc etc)

Slow. Possible Memory Leak
Great idea but this tag is a bit raw.
If you use the read capability the file
sizes end up being and leat 4 times the
original. I've yet to be able to read a
file larger than a 1mb. It chokes the
server. Looking forward to the next version.
