I want to use an .idw dwg in a publication. What is the best way to accomplish this? I have Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Photoshop and have tried using different combinations but nothing looks very good at this point. Any help would be appreciated as I an trying to put together a parts manual using the exploded view drawings from Inventor

PDF?  That's what I end up using in most
cases...

Save copy as Bitmap, and under "options" set the X
resolution to 2000 or 3000.  Then convert that image to a jpeg in
photoshop.

Also, experiment with the filters in photoshop to
tweak your image  i use the "poster edges" filter to get a nice black
outline on my rendered views.
