When you convert from word to picture or from pdf to picture and you have lines do you notice some lines are thicker?


What would be the best way to do that.

    a PDF is already a PRINTED document, thats the way it works. by default most pdf's are set at a print resolution of 300 DPI(you can alter those settings when you create a pdf file). This will ALWAYS mean that any STRAIGHT lines of equal thickness will always be represented by different thicknesses because of the resolution(the 300 dpi) not being fine enough(most modern printers are capable of 2400 dpi), especially if the lines are THIN in the first place. Basically the SAME issue applies to WORD and how it stores a picture, it will only store the DETAIL required to PRINT the document at a certain DPI. Pictures will always look ok, but gridlines or any straight line at any angle may suffer badly. In essence you should NEVER convert a PDF or a WORD document into a picture file as its highly likely to be POOR resolution and not worth the bother. You may be better off displaying the file, zooming in as best you can to fit your screen and taking a "print screen" image.
