Pictures/Images in InfoPath form print with terrible quality

Hi,

I have created several forms in InfoPath that I publish in SharePoint but I have a recurring problem, any image I place on the form is presented perfectly on the screen but when it is printed it loses quality and creates a horrible and unprofessional form. The fonts and tables print perfectly, just the images are a problem.

I have researched for any references to best practices in using images in InfoPath but I have not found anything. Should I use specific file types? Print with a specific driver or a specific configuration?

Anyone else had this problem and/or is aware of a solution?

Thanks.

Hello,
Did you try to create a special print view? Maybe it will help.

Yes, but the quality of the images is still affected. I have created the print view with dimensions that reflect the A4 size of the paper sheets but I'm starting to wonder if the images will have a better quality if the form is bigger and shrinked to fit the paper.

For anyone that might have a similar problem and frustration with the quality of printed logos, the solution is not very intuitive.

You can create a very high quality huge image (e.g. Logo with 6000x3000 Pixels in PNG) and then reduce it in the form to fit neatly into your printed view (e.g. 300x150 Pixels).

This WILL NOT LOOK GOOD at all in the form on screen, but it prints fantastically.

No idea why, but it works.
