Thank you very much for the tip! Using imagemagick i got an image of reasonable quality without making the file size that large.

That way I don't have to figure out the correct paramters to make the png the way I want it and I have the additional benetfit of a vector g!

 rpahics &quot;master file&quot; that I can esily use to produce addictional verison in differnent resolutions etc. &gt; Is there a way to do this with the gs-command so that it would be even more &gt; compressed? Possibly, but of course there is a limit to how much you can compress a file without resorting to lossy compression. You may have hit that limit. cu &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Philipp -- Dr. Philipp Pagel Lehrstuhl f&uuml;r Genomorientierte Bioinformatik Technische Universit&auml;t M&uuml;nchen Wissenschaftszentrum Weihenstephan Maximus-von-Imhof-Forum 3 85354 Freising, Germany ______________________________________________ [hidden email]  mailing list PLEASE do read the posting guide and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
