Starting from an example can speed up code development significantly.

pdf_add_image_to_page.go
            /*
 * Insert an image to a PDF file.
 *
 * Adds image to a specific page of a PDF.  xPos and yPos define the upper left corner of the image location, and width
 * is the width of the image in PDF coordinates (height/width ratio is maintained).
 *
 * Example go run pdf_add_image_to_page.go /tmp/input.pdf 1 /tmp/image.jpg 0 0 100 /tmp/output.pdf
 * adds the image to the upper left corner of the page (0,0).  The width is 100 (typical page width 612 with defaults).
 *
 * Syntax: go run pdf_add_image_to_page.go input.pdf <page> image.jpg <xpos> <ypos> <width> output.pdf
