I have a question. I noticed the jaggies in your image. If I recall
correctly, pdfwrite allows you to set the resolution at 72dpi or 300dpi or
even 600dpi if you have the newest beta GSview. What was your resolution
set at for conversion? Did it matter?
As it turns out, the first file I sent used format 1 and 72dpi.
Here's another file, using Format 3 and 600dpi resolution, but it doesn't
look that much better. And it came out in landscape for some reason. You
