I would like to know the highest resolution that I can set in the conversion of a postscript file to its pdf file using ps2pdf. In Ghostscript help pages I see:

The default internal resolution for pdfwrite is 720dpi

This is achieved by a -r720 with ps2pdf.

Normally in my dvi2ps conversion I have a high resolution setting: -D7200. So can we use the same resolution with ps2pdf? Of course the final printout depends on the resolution that the printer allows.

Thanks a lot...
