You want a "pdftex.cfg" file which contains "imageresolution <something"> Here is mine: ---------------- % Thomas Esser, 1998, 1999, public domain. output_format 1 compress_level 9 decimal_digits 3 page_width 210truemm page_height 297truemm horigin 1truein vorigin 1truein % pdftex.map is set up by texmf/dvips/config/updmap map pdftex.map % This shows how to add your own map file. % Remove the comment and adjust the name: % map +myfonts.map image_resolution 115 ---------------------- All the lines apart from the "image_resolution" come from the defaullt pdftex.cfg. Getting a decent resolution figure is hard work - there is no right way. It depends on the resolution the images were created at the resolution you are viewing them at. The above figure gives reasonable results for screenshots created at 800x600 screen resolution and printed from "acroread" to A4 paper.
