Magnus ,

Your document contains EPS images with a lowres preview. OO or LO "shows" only this preview.The poor quality is due to the lowres (72x72) pixels per inch.

OO or LO can NOT show eps images.

Ok, so far the bad news, if you want to "see" hig quality in your LO doc , then you need to transfer the pictures to the OO-draw-vector format and copy from there to your Writzer Doc.

open your picture with Gview ( Opensource)
Convert in Gview to EPS, save.
Open the new saved EPS in OO-draw and copy the picture from draw into your Writer Document

When now making a PDF you will see that some parts of your picture (text and notations) have a "lower" quality than the original EPS output.

You can also following a other work flow, with no loss of quality.

Start opening your orginal pictures in Gview, export a to a pixel format, who has better results in your Writer Doc.

Insert this pixelformats as "linked" file in your writer doc.

Befor printing, change your "pixelformat_link" to the original "epsfile_link" ( can ealy been done with a macro when using some naming conventions)

Hope it helps a bit

I have made two test files with the kind of EPS images I work with. I put the
test together with OOo in the ODT document and then printed a PDF file of
that document with CUPS-PDF; I hope I managed to upload and attach them here
properly. With the files I want to show my problem and that is the poor
quality of the EPS images in the ODT document. The resulting PDF file is on
the contrary very good; it is e.g. better than if I had made the original
document in DOC format in Microsoft Word. But the ODT file that I work with
when writing my texts and books has such poor EPS illustrations that I
cannot rely on them for quick controls of what they contain.
