More contrast in LaTeX images

  1. Nov 12, 2005 #1
    Is there any way to make LaTeX images appear with more contrast when saved (in my case, as png, but jpeg and bmp are equally bland) and/or printed?

    Thank you.

    Probably not. IIRC, the LATEX images are presented as 72 dpi on the webpage, so if one simply copies them and pasts, so if one is copying from a webpage, one is stuck with 72 dpi, which is pretty coarse compared to 300 dpi, the general default setting for print in wordprocessors. There are separate applications for doing LATEX, and although I am not sure, I would imagine there would be some kind of resolution setting.

    As an alternate strategy, one could use \large or \Large, and then shrink the image.
