loss of quality importing PDF files

aznelson
Hi

I am running gimp 2.8 and I am importing PDF files. And on all PDF files that I
have imported there is a loss of quality. However this dose not happen if I
import a jpeg

When importing the pdf into GIMP have you tried changing the 'Resolution'
setting from the default 100 pixels/in to 300 or even larger - say 600?

I am using 2.10 but assume the same option applies to V2.8.
