PDF / EPS rastering quality

Post by zikko »


I'm trying to convert vector-based images into jpeg, and I'm not really happy with the quality of the results. I thought at first that it had to do with resizing the image, but I found that a no-option operation like:

convert logo.pdf logo.jpg

produced an image with poor antialiasing and jagged edges.

What approaches are there to improve rasterization results?

Thanks in advance

Try this command to get good antialiased PDF or Postscript images:
  • convert -density 400 logo.pdf -resize 25% logo.jpg
