Hey R,

To my knowledge image support is pretty much all good (i'm assuming you
mean simple image formats like jpg, png, etc), while more complex image
formats have minor issues in eps (eps seems to have more problems
outside of windows) and wmf (wmf is handled by a library managed by the
document liberation team). Below are bugs i've reporter/commented on for
the different formats.



When it comes to svg, the svg insert library is quite good and
constantly improving. When it comes to the svg open library that works
in Draw, that one has quite alot of problems from the bug reports i've
seen and i havent seen much work going into fixing those bugs.
