I think the issue is vector versus raster.  GIMP is a raster program.
Since Mathematica is dealing with the curves directly, it probably simply
translates the equations into a vector, which can then be handled by
Postscript native elements, and likewise, TeX.

You can definitely make this better by increasing the resolution.  I would
suggest 300DPI as a starting point.
