Does anybody know if converting from html to pdf has a problem in displaying images.. .jpeg, or gif images? The code below i use to convert my page to a pdf but the pictures does not show:

Dim sr As StringWriter = New StringWriter()
HttpContext.Current.Server.Execute("Print.aspx", sr)
Dim htmlmessage As String = sr.ToString

Dim pdfBytes As Byte() = New HtmlToPdfConverter().GeneratePdf(htmlmessage)
Dim response As HttpResponse = Me.Response
response.BufferOutput = True
response.AppendCookie(New HttpCookie("fileDownloadToken", String.Format("{0}{1}", customernumber, accountnumber)))
response.AddHeader("Content-Type", "binary/octet-stream")
response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=" + String.Format("{0}{1}.pdf", customernumber, accountnumber))
response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
Catch ex As Exception

I have faced similar problem while creating pdf using ASPOSE and passing html to it. As the little I remember it has to do with the path of the image inside the pdf.

PDF when read the images are copied locally at some path. not sure. Please check if this clue helps.

I guess you are getting X icon in the place of image
