Thanks for the advice. They say they have updated their Stata. Unlike in your examples, the width and height options are not specified in the export command (no options are specified). Do they have an impact on this problem?

I have Stata/SE 10 for Windows and cannot reproduce the behavior you observed.

sysuse auto
scatter mpg weight
graph export test.png, width(1650) height(1200)
graph export test2.png, width(600) height(400)

Is your colleague's Stata fully updated? The initial release of Stata
10 had a bug in export to PNG format when the width or height options
were specified. This bug was fixed with the update of July 25.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is there some setting to correct this or is it a

p.s. The graphs were sent to me by a colleague running a do file I sent to them.
I don't have a copy of Stata 10 myself to reproduce the problem, but I have the
graphic files.
