Presentation data objects contain a single type of data (such as GIF, JPEG, PNG, and
TIFF images) and can be used in your print jobs. These data objects can be placed
directly in a page or overlay or can be defined as resources and included in pages
or overlays. Using a data object as a resource is more efficient when that object
appears more than once in a print job; resources are downloaded to the printer just
once and referenced as needed.
Data objects can either be included inline with a print job or installed in a resource
library by using software such as AFP Resource Installer. If you install your data objects in a resource library, you can associate color
conversion CMRs with them.
