In the groff world, the mechanics of inserting a picture
(not drawn by troff itself) into the generated output is done
by the postprocessor via a "device special", which in the
case of grops is "ps: import".  Troff does not need to know
anything about the picture except to reserve a little space
for it, so it does not overwrite other parts of the output.
This is preferably done with a macro to simplify the markup,
but the included picture can be treated as an inline item
just like a normal piece of text, as the attached example
shows (deliberately left simple to better understand the
way it works).
