 * Starter layer:
 * Define several layers, output images and text to them and define
 * particular layers to be visible when opening the document
 *
 * Define two layers for RGB or Grayscale images and two layers for English or
 * German image captions. Output images and text on the various layers and
 * open the document with the RGB images and English captions visible.
 *
 * Required software: PDFlib/PDFlib+PDI/PPS 9
 * Required data: grayscale and RGB images
