Hello Simon. Yes, I've played around with the compression and resolution quality and boosted them to 100%. I'm finding that if I have an XCF exported to PNG my PDF export results are superior to my XCF to JPG or BMP PDF export results. Why? I don't know yet.

Matthew,I presume that XCF to JPG is crude because the format is loosy, where as the PNG format is not. I always use PNG until the final production copy of a document is produced, for this reason.
BMP are like TIFF files. They are like straight up screen dumps. They are usually very large and quality is dictated by the bits and colour settings. In order to get anything of value most BMP or TIFF files are 20-30 MB in size. Comparable PNG files are <1MB in size.
