Last figures lose resolution

Postby Cristian » Thu Apr 17, 2014 9:54 pm

Hello all,

When I compile my latex document I get everything right, except that from figure 17 to the last one the image quality is far lower than figures 1-16. All the images comes in eps format except for 3 that comes in pdf. The last one of those three figures is coincidently located as figure 16, whereas the other two are labeled as figures 5 and 9 (came up well on the pdf output).

To compile, I use Texnic center version 2.0 Beta1, and my output profile is selected as LaTex-->PS-->PDF (otherwise the figures comes up with a wrong bounding box).

Here's a copy of my preamble:

  1. \documentclass[letterpaper,11pt,spanish,final,titlepage]{book}
  2. \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
  3. \pagestyle{headings}
  4. \usepackage{amsmath,chngcntr}
  5. \usepackage{amsthm}
  6. \usepackage{graphicx}
  7. \usepackage{amsfonts}
  8. \usepackage[dvips]{epsfig}
  9. \usepackage{indentfirst}
  10. \DeclareMathOperator{\sen}{sen}
  11. \renewcommand\tablename{Tabla}
  12. \renewcommand\figurename{Figura}
  13. \renewcommand\chaptername{Cap\'itulo}
  14. \renewcommand\contentsname{Contenidos}
  15. \renewcommand\appendixname{Ap\'endice}
  16. \counterwithout{figure}{chapter}

And I put my figures on the document trough an \input option as \input{Figures}

Do you know any way to resolve this? Thank you!

Hard to tell with this little information. Please try to hack down your file to the minimum. Make copies and to that in an extra directory. This is also called a minimum working example. All the information need (and just the information needed) to tell a story.

LaTeX in dvi-mode cannot process pdf images. Use pdflatex for that. You can convert your eps files using package epstopdf.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
