Hi, I have tried different methods in order to add an image/logo to the pdf using ITextSharp and have failed doing so. In one of the methods I stated the coordinates where the image should be but I don't really know how coordinates work exactly and the image would not be positioned in the desired position. The other method I used didn't return any image at all.
Also when a new user registers to my website, an email is sent with user details via pdf but the generated pdf is empty when attached to the email.
I would really appreciate some help in this pls.

Thanks in advance.
