Quality of an exported image

Does anyone know if it's possible to adjust quality of an exported image (maybe via registry settings?) - specifically for the exported sheet images?

thanks in advance,

No ideas folks?

Interestingly enough - there is a setting in User Preferences called "Clipboard zoom" that works well when the image is being copied into clipboard, but doesn't seem to do much when the image is saved into a file...

appreciate your thoughts...

Hi Oleg - this may be related to an issue which I am experiencing when printing a report to PDF.

The PDF I was creating was really slow when opened in Adobe Reader and I have discovered it is due to the gridlines for axis option being selected for the chart object included in the report. A PDF containing a chart with no gridlines loads very quickly and has no issues with scrolling/zooming within the document.

But it is the opposite when the chart object has gridlines (which all of mine do) - you can see the gridlines being rendered when I open the PDF. Also interesting to note that the PDF file size is also 10 times larger than the PDF doc with the chart with no gridlines.

I have asked QlikTech Support for something similar to yourself - how to stop the graphics being exported with such high quality or maybe not as a vector-based graphic (which it kind of looks like it is).

Hi Nathan,

interesting behavior, with the grid lines... My problem is quite the opposite - my client is exporting a chart into an image file, and they would like to increase the quality of the image...

Maybe I should add grid lines and that would cause a higher resolution image?

Adding gridlines does not improve quality when exporting as an image.

But exported images on the whole are much worse in quality than the PDF print quality. Interesting but doubt there is a fix for it.

FYI - QlikTech have confirmed my PDF Grid problem as a bug.

Hi Oleg & Nathan,

I understand this is old post, however I am having same problem. The quality of the image is not good and it is pixalated after moving the objects to Powerpoint. Is there any setting to increase the resolution?

Many thanks in advance.

Cheers - DV

Deepak, by any chance were you able to resolve this issue? It looks like a few of us are still suffering from this and can't find a solution. Let me know.

Thanks

Sorry Eric. I can't remember if I have managed to fix it or not but I'll revisit and get back to you.

Cheers,

Hi Deepak, OK, let me know if you find anything. It would be much appreciated. I can't stand staring at these low quality images and the high res alternative I found (unchecking the postscript box or something like that) makes the files ~2 MB per page, which is too big for practical use, unfortunately.

instead of using the regular paste option, use paste special to paste the image as a bitmap. Credit to http://www.qlikfix.com/2012/02/23/prevent-fuzzy-images-when-exporting-qlikview-graphs/
