    Quality printing

    I currently use MapPoint 2001. I have read numerous posts about printing the maps to larger paper, but after trying all the suggestions I have not printed a sufficient map. The thing that worked the best was saving as an html and opening in a photo editing program to save as a jpeg. This may have been a slight improvement but not enough to go through all those steps when copying and pasting into PhotoDraw is of basically the same quality. However, I believe that the map quality in MapPoint 2001 is just of a poor quality large or small.

    My question is this...
    Would upgrading to MapPoint 2004 improve map quality in general, or would it be a waste of money? I am not concerned about the new features, just the quality of the map. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Why not try the demo of 2004 so you can see for your-self? I do not remember the exact price but I think it is just shipping cost?

    I think saving the map as a web page and opening the resulting jpg image works well and can produce a quality image but you do need to expermint with the "Map Size in Pixels" (Width x Height) in the dialog box save as web page.
