I am not able to see the relation between this parameters. Will I get the same result with

pointsize=24 and cex.axis=1
and
pointsize=12 and cex.axis=2

It seems that the fonts will be only scaled when I am changing the pointsize after printing
and it seem that they will be drawn in a better resoultion with the second way pointsize=12 and cex.axis=2

 bmp(filename = "Rplot%03d.bmp", width = 480, height = 480,

         pointsize = 24, bg = "white", res = NA)

     axis(1, 1:7, LETTERS[1:7], cex.axis=1)

 bmp(filename = "Rplot%03d.bmp", width = 480, height = 480,

         pointsize = 12, bg = "white", res = NA)

     axis(1, 1:7, LETTERS[1:7], cex.axis=2)  

with regards
