I have lots of material - such as Surfer maps, Origin graphs etc. and
I wondered if I can import them directly to Lyx or need to export
them first to jpeg and only then import ?
Although this depends on various settings (e.g. platform, software), you
may have to do a bunch of conversions first. I tend to favour the PNG for-
mat, but have used the vector graphics format, namely EPS (encapsulated
PostScript) where suitable, i.e. when data was not of a fixed size. For
image conversions I recommend ImageMagick, although the GIMP would be good
if you dislike the command line. It is also available for all popular
Cause I tried to export surfer to EMF, but the result in the DVI file
was a huge picture, and when I tried to minimize it (scaling it to
only 20% in the figure dialog box) the quality was horrible.
Oh, and I did read the intro and tutorial and went over almost all
the other guides. nice humor:)
Re-scaling of images, especially if the formats are atypical, leads to bad
results. Graphical toolboxes handle resampling better, so I suggest you
convert the images first.
Hope it helps,
