When I export a TIFF image, what does the High Resolution option do?

When exporting TIFF images from v4.1 and earlier, the High Resolution option enables you to export TIFF files that have a resolution of 288 dpi. This can be increased to 576 dpi by turning off High Resolution and setting the Scale by field to 800%.

In v4.5, it is possible to export TIFF images with a maximum resolution of 1400 dpi (Mac) and 800 dpi (Windows).

    Why am I unable to ungroup a plot that is copied and pasted under OS 10.6 (or later) or imported into Office?

    • As of OS 10.6, the PICT format has been deprecated by Apple. When an application copies a PICT file to the Clipboard, it is converted to a TIFF file by the OS. You will not be able to paste an image into another program and ungroup the image.
    • One workaround is to save the PICT file to disk and import this into the application. This will not work in Office 2008 or later. Office converts these images upon import as well.
    • You can also use the Print command to create a PDF image of the plot. This can be imported into programs like EazyDraw and Illustrator and be ungrouped.

    What is the easiest way for me to export a plot?

    The easiest way to export the plot is to use the Copy Graph command. A TIFF (OS 10.6 or later) or PICT file will be copied to the Clipboard that can be pasted into another application.

    How do I export plots in a PDF format?

    • Plots can be saved as PDF images using the Print Graphics command and choosing Save As PDF within the Print dialog. Plots saved in this manner will be centered on a full page.
    • If you want the PDF file to be the same size as the original plot (without taking up a full page), copy the plot, paste it into the Preview application that comes with OS X, and export it from Preview in a PDF format.

    How do I copy and paste plots from KaleidaGraph into Adobe InDesign?

    InDesign appears to have an issue when pasting PICT files from other applications that result in jagged lines. One workaround is to save the PICT file to disk (by choosing Save Graph As and selecting PICT from the Format pop-up menu) and then using the Place command in InDesign to import the image.

    What does the PostScript PICT option do?

    When exporting PICT images, the PostScript PICT option enables you to create high resolution PICT files for use in word processing programs. For the PostScript PICT option to be useful, you need to print to a PostScript printer. Also, the destination application should not try to disassemble the PICT file or you may see a double image.

    Can I increase the resolution of GIF, JPEG, PNG, and Windows BMP images?

    In v4.1 and earlier, all of these formats are 72 dpi images (when the scaling is set to 100%). The resolution of these images can be increased by setting the Scale by field to 400%. Once the image is imported into another program, it needs to be reduced by 25%. This process of scaling it up and then down builds resolution into the image and can get you closer to 300 dpi.

    In v4.5, all of these images can be exported with a maximum resolution of 1400 dpi (Mac) and 800 dpi (Windows).

    I am exporting a PICT to a drawing application, and the result is a huge double-image. Why?

    You are getting the double-image because the Postscript PICT option is selected when you are exporting the graph as a PICT. When going to a drawing application such as Canvas, try using the High Resolution option. You can also export as a high resolution TIFF file.

    What option do I use to take a PICT file into a word processing application?

    The Postscript PICT option is usually used when taking a PICT file into a word processing application. You can try using it with other programs, but if you see a double-image, try exporting at a higher resolution (v4.5) or using the High Resolution option instead (v4.1 and earlier).
