In this evample, what settings should I adjust to make the .jpeg look less fuzzy and have crisp black lines like a vector? any and all suggestions welcomed.
Not a problem. The example you posted was exported out of composer as a technical illustration or vector. If you can output vector then convert and save larger than needed jpeg in another program you should be perfect. Or as close as its gooing to get to it.
You can try exporting your jpeg at double the size your actually going to use and then scale it down in your publishing program. Also make sure your anti-aliasing box is checked in your hi res output. That may clear your lines up a little but nothing is going to get you the crisp lines and size adjustability as vector will. Is there a specific reason you don't want to use vector? The image you attached looks to be vector. Can you explain your workflow to get that image in jpeg format. What size jpeg are you going for?
Thanks for the tip!
I am assisting a customer and I agree that a vector output would be not only ideal, but superior to the raster as it is being used. Alas, it is not my project. So, with that said, a .jpeg is needed with as little "fuzz" to it as possible. The image I used is from the Composer Samples library that is of similar detail to the customer part, saved as a JPEG.
