Fei Min:

I do exactly the same thing, using Visio to PDF and PNGs.

But I'm going to have a good look at the article that was sent and see if I can 
improve upon things (both in image quality and PDF size).

I'm also going to try the Visio to SVG option. I know I tried SVGs years ago, 
but there was a problem - although I can't remember the details.

Thanks for that article, Carol.

I've been using PDF from Visio source (sometimes Illustrator or CAD drawings), 
and I'm currently using PNG for screen captures. I used to use TIFF, but then 
something changed. I'm not sure if it was going from Windows XP to Windows 7 or 
changing my laptop, but the TIFF figures were all fuzzy and the PNG ones 
weren't (when I look at PDF and HTML). I haven't tried printing the PNG 
graphics; we just ship PDFs and since our customers haven't complained, maybe 
they're not printing them either.

Where I work we use either PNGs (if we have a screenshot) or SVGs (generated 
from Visio). We do a *lot *of Visio diagrams.

We use PDFs created in Illustrator.  As I understand a single page illustrator 
and PDF file created by illustrator are identical or at least totally 
exchangeable.
