SeanMorgan pointed out in Support.Question336 that htmldoc can cause corrupted images if compression is enabled.

I found that it helped to modify /lib/Foswiki/Contrib/ (down near the end, where all the other arguments are added) to add an extra argument.
   push @htmldocArgs, "--no-compression";       # Work-around for image corruption problem

We need an option to disable PDF Compression. Default will remain to generate compressed PDF documents.


Added two options -
  • pdfcompression - set to "none" or 1-9
  • pdfjpegquality - set to "none" or quality 01-99
