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...



dvips -D10000 -t unknown input.dvi


gswin64c -r10000 -dCompatibilityLevel=1.5 -dAutoRotatePages=/None -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -o output.pdf input.ps
  • Thanks. Do you have a source of information for these numbers of 10000? 1 vote up. – yCalleecharan Apr 8 '13 at 7:23
