If you mean that when you export as say a bitmap with a high image
resolution that the ticks virtually disappear, this is a known bug
that has been present for awhile but doesn't seem to get fixed.

e.g. Export["plot.tiff", Plot[x, {x, 1, 4}], ImageResolution -> 600]

you need a microscope to see the ticks!!

Could we get a commitment from Wolfram to fix some of these long
standing bugs in the next release? e.g. if something was a bug in 6,
7, and 8 should it really be still there in 9??
