LaTeX-Template for Inline Images

If you want your document to be self contained, you might want to decare inline images in base64 encoding.

Just use:

\usepackage{inline-images}
…
\inlineimg{<filename>}{<base64 encoded raw image data>}

This creates a file <filename>.base64 containning a copy of the raw image data, then a sytsem shell is executed to convert the raw data to the binary image and a file <filename> is created, which is then include in your document.

Note: The LaTeX compiler must be able to execute system commands, so option --shell-escape is required.

Note: It is desiged for Unix systems and it requires the command line tool base64 installed. Compilation calls base64 -d <filename>.img.base64 > <filename>.img.

Example

This example code:

\documentclass[a5]{article}
\usepackage[paperwidth=6cm,paperheight=4cm]{geometry}

\usepackage{inline-images}

\newcommand{\img}{iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAMgAAADIC … BQ8f/JOcTkviE7+QAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==}

\begin{document}
\inlineimg{example.png}{\img}

After compilation:

xelatex --shell-escape -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode example.tex

Results in this example document:
