I am a beginner in LaTeX, tentatively using it for industrial documents. I am working on a laboratory report containing little text and a large number of pictures. I prefer to leave the pictures at their native quality level for archival purposes and because a number of them get magnified by the elegant routines found at this link: How to create magnified subfigures and corresponding boxes for portions of a large image
I typically get a PDF file directly using
I could not find any drop of quality with each of these two settings (there are two lower quality options available, "ebook", and "screen"), when printed on A3 paper with a 600 dpi laser printer, and I would like to get the "printer" quality natively (directly at the creation of the PDF files), in order to eliminate the post-processing operation. Is there a way to do this?
