I've *glanced* at PS and PDF. I suspect PS would be easier to code because it is a programming language and therefore you can create subroutines to do all the hard work. Then generate the PS like you might HTML, by spitting out the fixed header including subroutine definitions and then data and subroutine call(s). I don't know if Ghostscript handles it but I recall that PS has operations to read external files as well (may or may not be handy). PDF on the other hand I believe is a superset of PS, but encapsulated within a data model. I've there have been quite a few articles on spitting out PDF using Java and other languages - and the examples looked quite straight forward - as long as your output was not too dynamic. Sorry I can't contribute to your image question. Brett.
