comment What is the difference between passing optional and mandatory arguments?
Welcome to TeX.SX! Usually, we don't put a greeting or a “thank you” in our posts. While this might seem strange at first, it is not a sign of lack of politeness, but rather part of our trying to keep everything very concise. Accepting and upvoting answers is the preferred way here to say “thank you” to users who helped you. A suggestion: Do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user1234".

pdftex (and probably also xetex) only fetch image dimensions through a \pdfximage, so you need some form of \includegraphics.

comment Do different TeX distributions produce PDFs of different quality?
That would be the case - AR 4 can only open 1.3. In theory the viewer could try it anyway, but AR probably fails safe.

comment Do different TeX distributions produce PDFs of different quality?
For 1.3 to 1.4 you would get a graceful fallback: Some colours (using transparency) would simply be wrong. But 1.5 simply won't work.
