Saving files as images with high resolution

I need to be able to save my JMP files as images with a high resolution for printing. As far as I can tell (I am a new user), images (tiff, jpeg, etc.) are always saved with a dpi of 96, whereas I need a resolution of at least 300 dpi in order to have acceptable images for my manuscript's print publication. Any suggestions?

I've seen two basic approaches.

1) Make the graph really big in JMP, including making the fonts, markers and line thicknesses bigger. Save it as an image and call it 300 dpi for the original size. For instance if your original is 2" x 3" (192 x 288 pixels), increase it to 600 x 900 pixels and call it 300 dpi after saving it.

2) Export it from JMP using a resolution-independent format, like EMF, EPS, PDF or SVG. The publisher may be happy with that. If not,you can convert the it to an image at the desired resolution. You can get EMF (Enhanced Meta-File) from copy-paste in Windows. You can get EPS or PDF via a printer driver in Save File mode. You can get SVG directly from Save As in JMP.
Thank you! This is very helpful. The #2 option -- copying and pasting -- worked best for me. I appreciate your help!

I think you can set that in JMP Preferences in the Windows Specific section. The copy/drag graphic formats will allow you to always have 300 dpi pictures when you copy or drag JMP stuff.
