[reportlab-users] background image

Hi all,

I was wondering if it's possible to use a full page image as background
in a multi page pdf without ending up with a very big file size? So the
background image may not be loaded on every page again but only once.
(the image is the same for every page)
Right now I'm using the canvas method drawInlineImage. If the image is
for example 100k and the pdf has 100 pages, I will end up with a file of
minimum 10M which is to big.

Anyone who has a solution for this?

Thanks a lot.

Best regards,
