It would be helpful to see the actual code that you are using, as is asked for in the Posting Guide.

For publication, it would be rare to want to use a bitmapped format such as jpg/png.

pdf and eps are vector based formats and would be generally preferred over the above.

I can only hazard a guess to consider that perhaps your height and width arguments for pdf() and/or postscript() are not set properly, as there are no other resolution based settings for those formats. By design, the output resolution is target device dependent.

Please provide the code that you are using and we can respond with more specific guidance.
