Probably your best bet is to learn how to use iText or some other PDF builder to embed images in your PDF documents.
Or at the risk of hearing from Whiny-Rob again, purchase commercial software :-)
There is also:
-QIMGCVTI API, but I don't see any good examples.
-There are DOS utilities you can purchase to convert them from the PC.
-Call IBM and ask for help or submit to COMMON as a 2020 request as Dan mentioned.
Google and experimentation is your friend, unless you're being paid by the hour :-)

subject: RE: Printing web format images (JPG) from IBM i
Thanks guys for keeping this thread alive. It sure would be nice if some
IBM'er (or anyone) who actually has access to a complete answer would step
in. Or if there is someone out there who can say "Sure, we use this all
the time on this printer. Here's a little sample code." The keyword
AFPRSC has been around for so long you would think the answer would exist.
If we keep printing from rpg, we are all probably going to need this
Does it only work on some printers? If so, some examples and why?
Does it only work to create pdf's? If so what are the techniques and
gotchas of sending the pdf back to the printer?
Do you need Infoprint?
Do you need psf/400?
