Hi list,

I need to overlay text on an image for a report cover.
Is is not just a logo graphic, it has bands of color across the page etc.

We have done this with in latex with

\usepackage[ovp]{psfragx}
\begin{figure}
\includegraphicx[width=\paperwidth,height=\paperheight]<\put(20,73){\parbox{10cm}{\title}}>
[\put(69,12){\makebox(0,0)[r]{\clogo}}]{TitlePage.eps}
\end{figure}

where "\title" is defined to contain the title, author, date etc.

However I cant see how to do this for pdflatex. I have looked at the
packages:
eso-pic ;
everypage; and
draftwatermark.

which come close. But they dont quite do it. The image is color and
should only be on the
title page. Any ideas? am I in the right group for this sort of question?

Bye
Rob
