Opens an image file of the given type and returns an image for placement in a PDF document. Depending on the image support that was compiled into PDFlib, type can be either "gif", "png", "jpeg" or "tiff".

stringparam and imageparam can be used to setup image masking by overlaying one image on top of the other. stringparam can be empty quotes, "mask", "masked", or "page" while intparam can be 0, the image identifer of the image mask or the page number if dealing with a multi-paged file. For more detail, see the PDFlib documentation.
