No I did not actually.
the plots are good enough for printing with an laser printer, but they are not good enough for the journal.
It is curious. one of them wants only pdf the other one wants tiff and wordperfect or word .. maybe the next one will receive old latin stone plates ;-)

Therefore for one journal it is enough to use the eps or bmp resolution with pdf file or just an pdf output, but for the next one I will need a tiff with 300 dpi at least.
