I'm trying to get Word 2004 to make good printed output of pictures. This all started when I was trying to Word documents created on a Mac with Word 2004 to print/display properly on a Windows Server 2003 running Word 2003. I got the needs Quicktime messages. After much head scratching ... I think I have a solution. For pdf files, import into a graphics program, I'm using GraphicsConverter and have it render to 600 dpi. Then save as a png file. I tried Preview and tried to save as a png file with 600 dpi, but I always got the same number of pixels as 300dpi. I assume Preview uses Quicktime to render, but how it determines the output actual number of pixels, I don't know. Any ideas? Also I tried some gif files. If I convert the low res gif into a png via preview and insert both pictures into a Word document, the png version prints better. I assume QuickTime is rendering for Word for the gif. Basically I want high quality print output on Mac and Windows.
