I get bad resolution when saving my plot with filled circles as .pdf or .eps

11 views (last 30 days)
Even though the plot looks okay when shown in MATLAB, the filled circles seem to lose their resolution when I save them. To see the difference, please open the saved PDF or EPS file. Thank you for your advice.
The code:
clear all, close all
sysX = 30; sysY = 30;
xyb = [5 +1j*5 , 5+1j*15 , 5+1j*25, ...
15+1j*5 , 15+1j*15 , 15+1j*25, ...
25+1j*5 , 25+1j*15 , 25+1j*25];
xym = sysX*rand(1,18);
fig = 0;
fig = fig + 1; figure(fig);
for i = 1:length(xyb),
plot(xyb(i),'ko'), axis([0 sysX 0 sysY]), hold on
plot(xym,'ko','MarkerSize',4,'MarkerFaceColor','k')
end
xlabel('Unit 1');
ylabel('Unit 2');
legend('Type 1','Type 2','Location','North','Orientation','Horizontal');
set(gca,'Units','pixels');
filenameStrEps = 'testFigure.eps';
filenameStrPdf = 'testFigure.pdf';
saveas(gcf,filenameStrEps)
saveas(gcf,filenameStrPdf)

You might want to use print instead of save, and set the resolution to something acceptable to you:
print(gcf, '-dpdf', '-r600', filenameStrPdf)
