Creating Good Images for research papers

It is a 3-step process I follow from Sparsh Mittal ‘s talk.

  1. Create Images using Open office Impress from a blank presentation.
    • // We can use shapes, or other images.
    • // We can use Text/Arrows/anything.
  2. Export as PDF.
  3. Use pdfcrop sample.pdf to crop the extra white spaces around and directly include cropped file in begin figure on latex.

PS: We can do the same for Openoffice Calc figures by exporting as .eps format.
