I have a LyX file with a PSTricks picture. Currently, when I want to convert it to a PNG image, I save the file as PS, then open the PS in gimp, then save it as PNG. Is there a way to save to PNG directly from LyX?
If you must use MS PowerPoint or LibO Impress to create the presentation, then you could define a
Postscript -> PNG or
EPS -> PNG converter in LyX (I'm not sure which one's more appropriate so feel free to experiment) using ImageMagick's
In practice this might be easier as the converters seem to be already in place, with only minor tweaks needed: in 2.0.6 try
Tools > Prefs > File > Formats > PNG then check
Document format and
Show in export menu (also consider setting the
Viewer to something less heavy than GIMP). Then you should be able to
File > Export > PNG.
Does it work?
