I am a new lyx user and have been having problems with images. Some of my images look very unsatisfactory when printed, with smudged writings etc. I have a variety of image types in my document, these being:
- Images copied and pasted from other pdf files
- Images I have drawn in microsoft word (sorry I know some linux users really don't like microsoft)
I have been inserting all the above types of images into adobe photoshop to add the text and then saved them as JPG and EPS files.
Then I tried inserting both JPG and EPS files into my lyx document and neither of the two have shown nice presentable results when printed as pdf.
I would be greatful if someone gives me a few hints on the best format images should be when inserted into lyx in order to give a sharp and professional result when printed in pdf form. I need this for my PhD report.
If drawing images in microsoft word is not helpful I have the office.org Draw program too, would that be better?
I have one more question
I have inserted an image in a table and then I want to put the figure number and label under it. When I put normal float figure under the table it gives a large distance between the table and figure label. I tried putting figure float on a row at the bottom of the table but lyx gives me errors.
I would appreciate some help.
