Essentially, my goal is to make my EPS figures look better than what they do when I open it in the Latex compiled PDF. Gimp shows my EPS figures looking way better because I set anti-alias on; I want to enable that in my PDF and hopefully not just on my own reader. Just for reference, I am only using PDFLaTeX; if this feature requires me to change then please recommend the best (I am hoping I don't have to go through that hassle just for anti-aliasing ).
- If I compile an EPS figure into a PDF file using Latex, does it remain a vector image?
- If it doesn't, is there any way to turn on anti-aliasing? My graphs are simply really ugly because the lines aren't anti-aliased.
- If it remains a vector, what makes it get displayed as anti-aliased in Acrobat Reader?
Thank you for your time!

I have achieved success, for some reason, using Distiller to convert my dvi file to pdf. Same exact dvi / ps file using the same exact methods yet Distiller actually gets the output pdf to anti-alias the figures.
