Daniel,
Did you try saving the figure with same dpi ?. Try the following.

plt.savefig('name',dpi=300)

Hi,
 
I need to create a huge range of plots with need to fit into a report (OpenOffice or Word). In order to save the work of manual resizing them when dragged and dropped, I wanted to preset a correct figure size with a nice resolution:
 
pylab.rcParams['figure.figsize'] = 5,4
pylab.rcParams['figure.dpi'] = 300
 
Now, the created figure has a size of 500x400 pixels, and when I import it into a word processor, its dimensions are reported as 12.7x10.16cm², which matches the figsize definition. Yet, the resulting images are pretty much blurred...
 
How can I increase the resolution, or what am I doing wrong? 
Thanks in advance,
Daniel
