PDF Export Image Quality
Does anyone know of a way to improve the quality of an image when exporting a SSRS report to PDF? I have an embedded image that when exported to PDF looks very bad (i.e. grainy, dull). I have tried various different image file types (i.e. jpg, png, gif) and DPI's to no avail. I know that Acrobat uses compression on images and will degrade the resolution of images in order to keep files sizes small and facilitate faster printing, however, these settings can be overridden. Also, I've read that using Acrobat Distiller to generate a PDF will not degrade the image. Are there any comparable settings in SSRS that will improve image quality? I've tried specifying the DPI (thinking that the image DPI was being degraded by default) by passing the following deviceInfo string to the Render method but this did not work: "<DeviceInfo>" + _ " <OutputFormat>PDF</OutputFormat>" + _ " <PageWidth>8.5in</PageWidth>" + _ " <PageHeight>11in</PageHeight>" + _ " <DpiX>600</DpiX>" + _ " <DpiY>600</DpiY>" + _ "</DeviceInfo>"

a quick question, which version of reporting service are you using, i think the dpix is only supported in rs 2008http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms155397.aspx2008http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms154682(SQL.90).aspx2005Jun

we face the same problem in SSRS2008 R2. This issue seems to be unsolved in SSRS2008 R2. I will have to post my feedback concerning the PDF export in SSRS2008 R2 to be enabled for a resolution >96dpi, I guess. Regards, Arcus (working on SSRS 2008 R2)

we face the same problem in SSRS2008 R2. Is it true that DpiX and DpiY DeviceInfo parameters are still not supported for PDF export in SSRS2008 R2? If so, we will have to report a serious bug... Arcus Regards, Arcus (working on SSRS 2008 R2)

PDF export works with a resolution >96dpi in SSRS2008 as I tested today, so any changes to the deviceInfo params are not required.Regards, Arcus (working on SSRS 2008 R2)
