I am writing a book proposal in LaTeX. It will have a lot of graphics, most of which I will create, and I know how to deal with those. But I have gotten permission to reproduce some pictures from books. I'm having trouble making good graphics.
I tried copying the page on a copier, then cutting out the part I need, then scanning that, then inserting that figure. This is cumbersome, and the quality isn't good (I guess copying and then scanning each lose some quality). I've been doing this on a standard desktop all-in-one printer.
Does anyone have a better method?
