Why would you convert them to PDF on the fly???  If you wanted to show
really hi-res images, yes PDF would result in *slightly* smaller files, in
*some cases*, but for standard web stuff, why not consider the humble
compressed JPG?  Whatever format, the file is gonna be huge if they're
trying to read a scan of a magazine page...!

As far as the PDF thing goes, I would generate your PDFs on your desktop
machine, and load them onto the site via FTP -- there is no point generating
PDFs on the on-the-fly if the content is static (ie, you'll only ever need
to generate it once).

Plus, you'll need PDFlib, not GD for that.
