How could you put a ps image as a background image on a calc sheet.

i have tried Oracle's pdf importer but it seems to display only the ps file in its source form, ie. as text.

If i convert the ps file into gif the background image appears as you could expect but the conversion impairs the sharpness of teh original image.

A PS image will only display when you print the file using a postscript printer (or through a printer driver that rasterizes postscript, e.g. ghostscript on linux systems). Thus, use ps if print quality matters to you. If display on screen is important, use a bitmap format. For vector graphics that display on screen, you are mostly restricted to Enhanced Metafile format. The most recent versions of OOo may support scalable vector graphics (or perhaps that is only LibreOffice).
