Getting better high resolution images!

Asked by manish sharma on 25 Nov 2012

I am using the "plot" command to generate certain graph. I save it in ".tiff" format.

However, the image looks blurry when I copy it to MS Word and especially when I take a print-out (may be because of poor resolution).

Is it possible to produce a better "high resolution" image?

If I have time, I save as eps and then use Photoshop or Gimp to crop it and save it in another format if needed. If I don't have time, I save as png since I can import that directly into Word and crop it there if necessary.

Wow. Thanks a lot. It worked.

I have a doubt: Although the image produced is good in resolution but it takes a lot of space in MS Word doc (meaning it occupies half of my A4 page). If I resize it in word, it again degrades the image.

Is their any solution to resize the image to smaller scale maintaining the high resolution?

Thanks again for helping me out!
