Host Print Transform (HTP) to process PNG formatted graphical files
For a project a need to get a .png image into a PDF file (including some text) generated by Infoprint Server. The Infoprint Server is not documented to support .png images as this is only something that can be physically printed on an IPDS printer that has the support to print that type of image. Infoprint Server is not such a printer.
On the IBM i, Host Print Transform (HPT) only supports <bilevel B/W> TIFF, JPEG and GIF images. HPT does not support PNG images. If the AFPRSC keyword is used to include a PNG image (component ID 65) or PDF in the spooled file, the file must be printed to an IPDS printer (physical, not digital) that has support to print the image, or another transform, to print it.
Again, Infoprint Server does not have the capability to support a .png image via the AFPRSC DDS keyword.
