I have a byte[], which I convert to an java.awt.Image by

Now, I need to write this image to a PDF using iText, but, iText accepts 'com.lowagie.text.Image'... Any suggestions on how to convert between the 2 image formats....

Any help is appreciated.

There's no need to convert the byte array into a BufferedImage - the iText Image class has methods for creating images from lots of sources, including byte arrays. Check its javadocs for details.
