Hi folks,

As a user of pdflatex there is a need to export graphics in either EPS 
or in PDF format. Using Export[] or Save as ...-option from menu I can 
export graphics as PDF, but the image size is not "perfect" enough. The 
best way what I have found (best quality and image size) is by exporting 
graphic as an EPS-file and then converting the EPS-file to PDF using 
tool called 'epstopdf'. The result is good, but I am trying to minimize 
the amount of steps needed.

I am not an expert in graphics so does anyone know any other way to do 
it and does someone know why the output of EPS file using Display[] or 
Export[] is different?

I have also noticed that you can export graphics in PDF format using 
Display[], but again the image size was incorrect, which has to fixed 
using 'epstopdf' (by incorrect I mean that there is extra empty space 
around the image).

Best regards,

Kurt Kokko
