    Does your xpm file contain transparent regions? If I recall correctly, this was one of the weak aspects of function read_xpm.

    In general, package 'picture' needs extra work; it contains a minimal image processing support to help package 'draw' in rendering images. Don't expect much of it, at least in its present state.

    No Maxima package contains routines for reading bmp, jpg and png images.

    It is not really clear from this bug report, what the problem is. There is no example.
    There is no answer to the last posting.
    Setting the status to pending and the resolution to "out of date".
