ps to pdf

Dear List,

I am trying to create a pdf document for print using the gimp. I have saved my image as a ps file and tried to convert it with ps2pdf. The problem is that it looks really really bad. The fonts are almost unreadable and the images are grainey.

How would I convert a ps file to a high quality pdf file. I have read the online docs for ps2pdf and found them a bit over my head. Any help that you could give me would help.

p.s If this is the wrong place for this could someone send me in the right direction.

Thanks,
Will

the easiest way out : simply open you document with you editor and hit the print button. then choose the option -> print to output file. give it a name, ie, file.ps or file.pdf
an easy way out : install enscrypt.
another way: install latex and its gui called lyx. you can turn xdvi files into .pdf and txt and .ps files.
all this of course assuming you're running linux. best regards
