Yes, you have to put the image into a box. 
You can also try constructs like

  \vbox to 4in {%
    \hbox to 3in {%
      \pdfrefximage \pdflastximage 
      \hss }\vss}

If you think something's wrong with

  \pdfrefximage \pdflastximage

replace them with

  \vrule width 3in height 4in

to see if the layout is fine.
