To qualitatively compare one's own data with other published data, it is sometimes needed to obtain the concrete data of the respective publication. In that case there are multiple ways to do that:

How to Export Figures

  • before saving the graphics in the respective programs
  • For LaTeX
    • recommended approach: export as pdf, use pdfcrop
    • epstopdf - usually installed with LaTeX
