Yet another reason to get your RevSelect MegaBundle'09 while it's hot - as it includes a full year of updates to revEnterprise :-)
Quartam PDF Library already lets you create documents with hi-res images today, as it includes the image at full resoluton, relying on Adobe Acrobat or other PDF viewers to display them at the right resolution on-screen and on paper. It is available for all platforms and supports Rev 2.7 and higher.
And don't forget that you can already use the 'printerOutput' property today to 'print' stacks to files (PDF on MacOSX, XPS on Windows and PS on Linux); the trick there is to put the image on a card at a large size appropriate to the resolution and then 'scale' it down to the right size using the 'print into rect' command.
