Okay, good to know. I guess I should have just tried it straight away. Sorry to be such a bother.

So, I finally tried switching over to this method (since it seems a bit cleaner), but I couldn't figure out how to use \AddToShipoutPicture or \includegraphics or whatever instead of \includepdf (since my images are in .png format, not .pdf).

Oh, so it is, thanks. Sorry about that. I think I just got overwhelmed by the verbosity of the first two approaches that I must have overlooked the third.

@egreg Yeah, the last \picturechapter macro is pretty decent. +1 for that. When I commented on this answer only the first example code was here. I definitely like \picturechapter a lot better than the other ones.

That certainly seems to be the proper TeX-y way to do it: overwrought, overly complicated, and requires a Makefile to update things correctly. ;)

For now just doing \def\chapterimage{chapter-1.png} \chapter{Chapter Title} seems to work. Thanks!

Thanks! How do I define \chapterimage? Just doing \chapter[chapterimage=foo.png]{ChapterTitle} didn't work (I got a macro error, "Undefined control sequence \chapterimage"). Also I'm including my individual chapters in separate .tex files, if that makes a difference.
