Yes and no. I don't think you can remove additional compression without
changing code in fop, but it shouldn't matter as the compression methods
used are not lossy. Thus image quality should be preserved.

If you specify image width in the .fo document, the correct DPI is used.
E.g. a 300 pixel wide image included with width="1in" will print at a
resolution of 300 DPI.

If you're going to use JPEG images you're even luckier. Fop includes the
image directly into the pdf document by using the pdf DCTEncode filter.
Embedded ICC profiles are also supported for jpeg images (this is for the
soon to be released Fop-0.20.3 version)
