# Exporting Graphics

I saved the following graph from Mathematica

The graph is very smudgy and it looks very bad when I embedded it in the TeX file. What are more efficient ways to neatly present graphical outputs from Mathematica in TeX etc.

I can provide the codes required to generate the graphs on request.

• "The graph is very smudgy" - how exactly did you save the picture and transfer it to your $\TeX$ document? – J. M.'s ennui Aug 8 '16 at 9:06

• jpeg is a lossy format, it is better to export in a lossless format like png if you specifically want to export in image format. – Feyre Aug 8 '16 at 9:14
• I often do this for journal publications. The journal requirement is eps format. The eps created by Mma is, however, not the same as the standard one. For this reason I save the image in pdf format and then with the CorelDraw convert the pdf into eps. The result is the image quality good enough for Physical Review. – Alexei Boulbitch Aug 8 '16 at 9:29
• @JunaidAftab try Gimp (which is free) to convert the PDF to EPS ... lakewoodsound.com/misc/pdf2eps-gimp.pdf – Young Aug 8 '16 at 13:09
