Hint: Quality of images for printout
« on: May 12, 2009, 08:43 AM »
Here is how to get a good quality image of your Sankey diagram, even on large printouts:

One option is to export the diagram as a vector image. The file extension is EMF. EMF images do not contain pixels but drawing commands (DrawCircle, DrawRectangle...). However, not all graphics applications are able to handle the EMF format.

You can also improve the image resolution by increasing the zoom e.g. to 400% before exporting the diagram. We recommend to use the PNG image format. The rather large image file you receive can be resized in a graphics application.
